Never hug a mugger on Quadra

Whodunnit, and was there marijuana involved?

Whodunnit, and was there marijuana involved?

Quadra Island is featured as the rainforest setting of a new mystery novel in the Island Investigations International mystery series. Together, Sandy Frances Duncan and George Szanto co-author the series, which also includes titles featuring Gabriola and Whidbey Islands. The story’s detectives are sleuthing around Quadra Island in the employ of Noel’s old high school buddy, Jason Cooper. Jason and family are worried for the oldest son in the family, Derek, who was discovered badly beaten in the woods in nearby Campbell River and has remained in a deep coma for three weeks.

As the two get to know the sleepy island community, they’re surprised to discover that Derek may have been in on a drug deal, but why? Others in the community describe him as a decent young man with a good head on his shoulders-what could have possibly pushed him to deal in drugs? Kyra and Noel are determined to find out what circumstances could have drawn this happy family into such dark territory.

Tuesday Sept. 27, meet the authors, hear them read and have your book signed at the Quadra Island book launch, 7 p.m. at the Heriot Bay Inn; $20 includes appies and light desserts. Reservations 285-3322.
