Murder Rides A Gale Force Wind
An Island Mystery
WAS IT REALLY MURDER? Big crime comes to a town too small to merit even that title. Residents of the loose-knit coastal community of Echo Bay struggle with the same issues as the world at large: drugs, mental health, racial friction, sexism, you name it. But everyone signs on to the code: whether you like them or not, you always help someone in need. When local prawn checker Tim Connolly doesn't show up for a dinner date with his girlfriend Kit Sampson no one is too concerned. But when a body is found washed up on an islet by young boaters, the discovery fragments the residents into a tumult of distrust and suspicion. And then the RCMP come calling. Far from the structures created to monitor and regulate larger populations, these people are resourceful, tough and sometimes merciless. If something needs to be cleaned up, they clean it up. They gossip, embellish, draw conclusions and take action. Sometimes disaster results, and sometimes a fitting outcome. The glorious beauty of the Broughton Archipelago, with Echo Bay at the heart of its inlets and islands, provides the backdrop for these colourful characters who 'rub along' but can take justice into their own hands when one of their own breaks the social contract.
