In this third novel in the series, Thaddeus Lewis and his son journey into the heart of disaster. When the bloated corpse of a man dressed in women’s clothing washes up on the shore of Lake Ontario near Thaddeus Lewis’s home, nothing is found on the body except a small scrap of green ribbon. The year is 1847 – «Black ’47» – and 100,000 Irish emigrants are fleeing to Canada to escape starvation. The emigrants bring with them the dreaded «ship’s fever,» and soon Canadian ports are overflowing with the sick and dying and entire families are being torn apart. Lewis’s youngest son, Luke, who has aspirations of becoming a doctor, volunteers in the fever sheds in Kingston. When he finds a green ribbon on the lifeless body of a patient named John Porter, he is intrigued by the strange coincidence. Though dealing with demons of his own, young Luke enlists his father’s help to uncover the mystery, a tale of enmity that began back in Ireland. Their search leads them to the heart of the criminal underworld of Toronto, where the final acts of vengeance play out against the tragedy of the fever sheds.

Prohibition takes the battle, along with the party, to the streets. Jack McCloskey returned to Windsor, Ontario, from the Great War shell-shocked and battling inner demons. Channeling his energy into amateur fights, he’s noticed by a gangster sidelining as a boxing promoter. After a brief professional stint, Jack is invited to join the crew. It’s the early days of Prohibition along the Detroit River. Feeling trapped, Jack often tries to escape by throwing himself into relationships that are doomed from the start. Complicating matters further, a crime lord descends on the Border Cities, taking over all smuggling activity to finance his covert political agenda. In sharp contrast is the story of Vera Maude, a young librarian also yearning to escape, but to the cafes of Greenwich Village or the Left Bank. All she lacks is will. The climax occurs in a gripping battle at the crime lord’s house on Riverside Drive and its surprising aftermath the following morning.

A literary mystery where the people and the settings in the exotic East are paramount. Two entwined mysteries unfold in two time periods in Singapore – one in the present and the other in the 1920s. Artist Maris Cousins has lived in Singapore for four years, but the sudden death of her mentor, gallery owner Peter Stone, causes her to stop painting and leave Singapore to reconnect with her family in Canada. There she becomes immersed in the fictional stories of love and betrayal from Singapore’s past – in first editions left to her by Stone – written by a famous early-20th-century author, E. Sutcliffe Moresby. Drawn back to Singapore and the gallery, she searches for answers to the mystery of three people – a writer, his young wife, and their baby – who seem to be linked to Stone. But along the way, Maris becomes caught up in circumstances involving smuggling and possibly murder.
