Chief Inspector Gray James is sculpting the remembered likeness of his small son when he receives the call – a faceless corpse is found hanging by the choppy river, swirls of snow and sand rolling like tumbleweeds.

Montreal glitters: the cobbled streets slippery with ice, and the mighty St. Lawrence jetting eastward past the city. One by one, someone is killing the founders of a booming medical tech startup – propelling Gray into a downward spiral that shatters his hard-earned peace, that risks his very life, that threatens to force him to care and face what he has shunned all along: his hand in the storm.

From the prize-winning author comes a psychological, page-turning mystery with all the elements one needs on a rainy night: a complex murder, a noble yet haunted detective, and an evocative setting to sink into.

About the Author of this Murder Mystery, Ritu Sethi:

Gray James Detective Murder Mystery by Ritu SethiRitu needs coffee (her patch for Coca Cola), beaches, and murder mysteries to survive – not necessarily in that order.

She won the Colorado Gold Award and was a Daphne Suspense Finalist for the first in the Chief Inspector Gray James Murder Mystery Series, His Hand In the Storm. Both His Hand In the Storm and Kill Me Why (Book 2) are Amazon Bestsellers.

She has spent many years in Montreal and Vancouver – and decided to set her Gray James novels in those two cities. She is an avid murder mystery reader (especially of classic psychological mysteries). When she couldn’t find a protagonist like Gray James – a combination of Dalgliesh, James Bond, and Hercule Poirot – she created him. And the Gray James Novels were born.

She likes to write at her dining room table by the fireplace and hopes to one day live by the ocean. Alas, there are not so many (warm) opportunities to do this in Canada:-)

As a self-published author, Ritu makes all the creative decisions regarding her work – the blurb, the cover, the plot – and the artistic freedom this affords is thrilling.

She’s fulfilling her lifelong desire of becoming a murder mystery writer. Many thanks to all the readers who are making that possible.
