by Louis Bertrand Shalako
Recently widowed and inspired by a boyhood fascination with Sherlock Holmes, the middle-aged Inspector Gilles Maintenon of the Surete is on a walking vacation of Dartmoor when he stumbles upon death in mysterious circumstances. When the woman he is falling in love with is brutally murdered, Gilles swears that he will never rest until the case is solved, the killer is caught, and justice is done. With a vein of dark humour running through it, this noir detective fiction examines the unforeseen results of our simplest actions.
Louis Bertrand Shalako lives in Canada. He studied Radio, Television, and Journalism Arts at Lambton College. He enjoys cycling, swimming, and loves good books. He writes full time. His work appears in six languages. A writer since 1983, Louis knocked about at various jobs from the time he was 15 until he went back to school at the age of 25, which gives him a remarkable perspective into regular working folks' lives. As for the college stint, which included a year of fine arts, virtually every course involved some form of human communication, whether it was writing for the news, advertising and marketing, local radio, photography, or art history. According to Louis, he 'just wanted someone to teach me how to write.' The journalism skills serve him well, considering the need for proper research in fiction-writing, and the modern emphasis on social networking.
