Evidence of Uncertain Origin

by Nikki Everts

Montreal, 1969: one death-two sisters-three possibilities

~~~~~”…a fascinating backdrop for a mystery…” – C.S. O’Cinneide, author of Petra’s Ghost and The Candace Starr Series ~~~~~“…a wonderful historical mystery, cunning and political, but most of all: surprising and intriguing. Skeptical Kit and her imaginative and emotional younger sister Sondra make delightful sleuths, exploring Montreal during the FLQ crisis of the late 1960s. I enjoyed this novel very much.” – Sandra Gulland, author of the Josephine B. Trilogy ~~~~~“… a tale of sisterly love, human failings, misplaced loyalty, betrayal, forgiveness, danger and intrigue, delivered with a historically interesting twist. It is an engaging and suspenseful read.” – Sue Williams, author of Ready to Come About

Montreal, 1969: the glory days of Expo 67 are fading as a home-grown separatist movement, the FLQ, ramps up its bombing campaign. A World War I veteran dies; an accident, say the police, but granddaughters Kit and Sondra disagree. Their investigations stir up danger, plunge Kit into a risky liaison and unravel the mystery of their grandfather’s death as escalating violence threatens the historic city.
