Murder on Vancouver Island

Murder on Vancouver Island

Author(s): Kathy Garthwaite

Location(s): Vancouver Island

Genre(s): Crime, Mystery

Era(s): contemporary

The peace of a frosty morning is shattered when a man finds a colleague’s battered body. Vancouver Island detective William Gibson investigates…

The victim is found by a maintenance worker on the university campus. Despite being brutally murdered, there is a little other evidence; just a blood-spattered baseball bat and a condom placed under the body.

When the police discover that the victim, Robbie Spencer, was a closet homosexual, Inspector Gibson becomes convinced it was a hate crime.

However, co-workers are apparently nonplussed by the events, regarding the investigating officers with suspicion and disdain. Is the perpetrator one of them?

Gibson concentrates on a party held at the university the night before, one that he in fact attended. A fight had broken out between the guests. Can the two events be linked?

MURDER ON VANCOUVER ISLAND is free with Kindle Unlimited and also available in paperback. It is the first book to feature Inspector Gibson. The full list of books in this series is:

1. MURDER ON VANCOUVER ISLAND
2. MURDER AT LAKE ONTARIO
3. MURDER ON THE SAANICH PENINSULA

All of these books can be enjoyed as a standalone.

If you enjoy crime fiction by Melinda Leigh, Rachel Caine, and Kendra Elliot, you’ll love this atmospheric murder mystery set against the stunning backdrop of Canada’s west coast.

Look out for Kathy Garthwaite’s new crime series set in Canada, with books THE ALLEY and THE STUDY also available on Kindle.
