Hacked by Fiona Snyckers
16 Jan 2018
Lucien Faberge is not a popular man. When he turns up dead, there is no shortage of suspects. Unfortunately, one of them is Fleur, the best friend of private investigator, Eulalie Parl.
Fleur was last seen threatening Faberge in front of dozens of witnesses. A knife from her coffeeshop is the murder weapon.
Will Eulalie be able to prove her friend’s innocence before she is arrested for murder by Prince William Island’s newest chief of police, Donal Macgregor. In a world where Russian mobsters run shoulders with crooked racehorse owners and shady businessmen, Eulalie will need all her skills to unravel this mystery.
But Eulalie Park is no ordinary PI and Prince William Island is no ordinary place. Anything can happen here, and probably will.
