B.C. author to read from murder mystery

A B.C. author will read from her novel at The Beanery in Summerland later this month.

The Final Hours of John Doe – Truth and Reconciliation is the latest murder mystery by Nanaimo writer Paulette McCarthy.

The book centres around Special Situations Director Carrie Mix standing over a badly dismembered corpse found in a snowy field off the Ottawa beltway near the airport in an early morning snow storm.

In an instant ,Carrie’s past is front and centre. Everyone has secrets and everyone lies. Carrie has done her fair share of lying and more. The question becomes how much more can she continue to hide and for how long?

The first printing for Paulette McCarthy’s murder mystery, The Final Hours of John Doe – Truth and Reconciliation, has sold out. A second printing is now in progress.

McCarthy, who has been invited to join the Crime Writers of Canada at the professional author level, has also written short stories for screen production and edited stories for local writers.

The reading at The Beanery will be on Saturday, Sept. 22 at 2 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. This is the only Okanagan stop in McCarthy’s book launch tour.
