By the Time You Read This: A John Cardinal Mystery
Autumn is gorgeous in Algonquin Bay, but this year its beauty is tinged with something sinister. A young girl appears in a series of unspeakable photos being traded online among sexual predators, and background elements indicate she may live in Algonquin Bay. Sgt. Lise Delorme has to find the girl before she suffers more abuse. Delorme’s partner, John Cardinal, can’t help her because he has suffered a loss so devastating that his colleagues fear for his sanity.
As Delorme closes in on one predator, Cardinal receives a string of menacing letters and finds himself tracking a killer so ingenious that the accepted bounds of criminal justice do not apply.
