Crooked Lake is a romping account of love, life and murder on the Canadian Prairies. The mystery unfolds in a small Saskatchewan town where every nosy neighbor is an amateur sleuth and accusatory tongues wag freely on coffee row.

When a man is murdered on the shores of Crooked Lake, easy-going Bart Bartowski sets aside work at his fly-in-fishing lodge to come to the aid of his childhood friend whose been accused of the crime. Tempted by a beautiful young cottager and beguiled by the murdered man's wife, Bart is dogged by RCMP detectives who want him to stay out of what they consider an open and shut case.

Review - 'Crooked Lake is a funny book with a very likable hero, but the great strength is its firm setting in small-town Saskatchewan.' - Saskatoon StarPhoenix.

Review #2 - 'Like calamine lotion on an insect bite, this work of fiction is a balm to the spirit.' - Librarian Review.
