No Straight Thing
Available in Hardcover, Paperback, and Ebook
Depression Era Alberta is miserable and cruel, but WWI vet, Fergus Muir and his father are getting by. Plagued with guilt and memories of war, Fergus goes through life detached and cynical until he meets a young girl, Cat
Perkins, who reminds him of his late wife.
Cat watches helplessly as her family disintegrates. Everyone she cares for is vanishing before her eyes, leaving her all alone. When Cat gets into trouble, Fergus is driven to explore the shadier side of their small town, uncover vagrancy, violence and hypocrisy, to find the person responsible for the murder of a man he owes his very life to.
But if he takes the path to help both Cat and himself, he must face his darkest nightmares head on, but can his loyalty overcome the corrupting power of guilt?
