Merry Bell needed to get out of Vancouver. Fast.

Returning to her home town of Livingsky, Saskatchewan was a desperate step. Living with plenty of secrets, but no money, friends, or place to live during a prairie winter, all while trying to start her own PI business proves to be more of a challenge than she imagined. With a first case that quickly turns more dangerous than it first appeared, Merry must deal with a dodgy client, the murder of the surgeon who performed her gender affirming surgery, and more than one mysterious stranger.  

As Merry struggles to start over in her hometown, she not only has to unwind a mystery which imperils Livingsky's most powerful people, but must face a past she'd rather leave behind.

Author Bio

Anthony Bidulka writes traditional genre novels in an untraditional way, developing a body of work featuring underrepresented settings and characters.

Bidulka’s books have been nominated for Lambda Literary Awards, Crime Writers of Canada Awards of Excellence, Saskatchewan Book Awards, and a ReLit award. Flight of Aquavit was awarded the Lambda Literary Award for Best Men’s Mystery, making Bidulka the first Canadian to win in that category.

Anthony’s most recent book, Going to Beautiful, about a gay man rising from the depths of despair in search of joy, was shortlisted for a Saskatchewan Book Award for Best Fiction, a Crime Writers of Canada Award of Excellence for Best Crime Novel, and won the Independent Publisher Book (IPPY) Award as the Canada West Best Fiction Gold Medalist.

When he isn’t writing or busy pursuing volunteer and philanthropic efforts in his community, Bidulka loves to travel the world, collect art, walk his dogs, obsess over decorating Christmas trees (it’s a thing) and throw a good party.
