This paperback edition is a first printing of the Seal Books (Canada) edition, published in 1997. The book is in very good condition for its age, but is showing signs of wear to the covers. Reading creases to the spine and an inch-long crease across the bottom right-hand corner of the front cover. Heavy age tanning to pages and to insides of covers.
A Karl Alberg Mystery.
SYNOPSIS: “Sullen and withdrawn, homesick and angry, fourteen-year-old Eliot Gardener has been headed for trouble ever since his family moved from Nova Scotia to the damp, grey Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. But not like this. Not standing on the bramble-choked, blood-soaked beach where his parents lie murdered – and his sister slashed – by the machete he has turned on them… and can’t remember why.
Some say Eliot is a bad seed. RCMP Staff Sergeant Karl Alberg doesn’t buy that. But the case weighs heavily on him for he knew the Gardeners and he should have seen something coming. And now, poisoning the joy of his and Cassandra Mitchell’s wedding plans, a piece of his own past – the survivor of another shattered family – is stalking him. Someone else he has failed. Someone who wants revenge.
And, until he can lay to rest the madness of that past, Alberg cannot hope to enter the silent mind of Eliot where a time bomb is ticking away…”
