Dean Forêt divides his time between north and south. He has worked political campaigns in all three of Canada's northern territories but likes to write in Central America. The classical mystery is deeply conservative; once the crime is solved, the old order is fully restored. Dean Forêt's "investigator" is different. Rather than maintaining the status quo, Regina Colwell is an activist millennial who fights to change the world, case after case after case.
So far, Regina has appeared in four books:
Regina gets her feet wet,
Regina hunts the highwaymen,
Regina's diet of worms, and
Regina digs out survivors.
If these stories can find readers, more are to come.
