A Local Mystery by a Local Author 

Thursday, 24th March 2011, 7:00 pm 

Owl’s Nest is pleased to host the launch of Susan Calder’s debut mystery novel, set right here in Calgary! 

Susan is a member of Mystery Writers INK, the Writer’s Guild of Alberta and the Alexandra Writers’ Centre Society, where she teaches writing courses and workshops. Her poems and short stories can be found in The Prairie Journal, Alberta Views, Other Voices, and the Silver Boomers Anthology. Deadly Fall is the first in the Paula Savard mystery series. 

Deadly Fall 

Paula Savard’s life has stalled. Her lukewarm love life, job as an insurance adjuster and grownup children are more frustrating than exciting. However, she gets more than she asked for when her once best friend, Callie, is murdered while jogging to Paula’s inner-city Calgary home. The police suggest Callie was coming to Paula for help, which is news to Paula since they hadn’t seen each other in ages. Soon, Paula’s suspicions zero in on Callie’s new husband, Sam. 

An ill-considered investigation turns personal for Paula when she begins to get close to Sam, but is Sam’s interest a front to trick Paula? Lies begin accumulating. Suddenly, Paula’s not sure who she should protect and who she should fear. As the truth reveals itself, Paula hatches a plan to draw the killer out. The plan’s success would not only allow her to solve the murder, but also give her life a fresh start.

Come celebrate the launch of Deadly Fall with Susan Calder and the Owl’s Nest Staff!
