Thursday, November 22: Dave Butler
Booked! presents award-winning writer Dave Butler reading from his second Jenny Willson mystery, No Place for Wolverines.
No Place for Wolverines:
When National Park Warden Jenny Willson initiates a covert inquiry into a proposed ski hill in Yoho National Park, she’s quickly drawn into a web of political, environmental and criminal intrigue that threatens to tear apart a small British Columbia town, pitting neighbour against neighbour, friend against friend, family against family.
After a wolverine researcher dies in a mysterious fire, Willson forms an uneasy alliance with an RCMP corporal and an Idaho-based investigative journalist to expose the truth behind the ski hill project. With characteristic tenacity, she discovers that perception differs from reality. Willson ends up in a showdown with the American proponent, with her own agency and with the political puppeteers who pull strings in the shadows.
