Nice to see another Canadian author with a crime mystery series set in an exotic location (locations, actually) and with a multi-book deal. Well done! Can’t wait to read all about the adventures of Ava Lee (although I keep thinking of Anne of Green Gables for some reason.) Congratulations, Ian Hamilton! And good on Anansi, as well, for recognizing what some of us have believed for a long time: that mysteries can be literary fiction, too.
And this great article in The National Post explains why it is that ‘crime pays.”
