About the Book

It’s the beginning of a new year in Montreal—1956. A mysterious American woman from St. Paul checks into a luxury hotel and is found in her room the next day dead from an apparent suicide. The police examine the scene, and the chief is eager to close the case. But something doesn’t add up. Her passport and driver’s license are missing. They begin to wonder why a woman would travel all the way to Montreal just to commit suicide. Lead detective Jack Macalister recruits his friend PI Eddie Wade to find the answer. Eddie travels to St. Paul to investigate her background and verify her identity only to discover that no one knows her. But someone doesn’t want him snooping around. After barely escaping with his life, Eddie continues the investigation in Montreal with his new partner and wife, Josette, and gathers enough evidence to move the case from suicide to murder. When they stumble across the woman’s true identity, chaos ensues as a local case of murder suddenly transforms into a potential international powder keg—all while a murderer lurks in the shadows. In this fourth book of the Montreal Murder Mystery series, both Eddie and Josette go after the killer in a relentless, unstoppable pursuit. They now know who he is; all they have to do is get him. Lovingate is a riveting story that unfolds with jarring momentum and endless suspense.
