The Suspect (1986)

The Suspect The Suspect by L.R. Wright

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Not too many books have characters that I care about so much that I tear up at the ending. This was one of them. The Bas Bleu Catalog suggested this and another title by the LR Wright and I got them both from the library.

A little gem of a mystery where the reader knows who the murderer is right from the beginning but doesn't know why or what will happen. Set in a small coastal town in western Canada, this beautifully written story deals with much more than the usual murder mystery. Highly recommended.

Being curious about the author, I went to her site and found the following.

Bunny Wright was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1995. Surgery brought a clean bill of health but the disease returned in 1997. Over the following three years she wrote three novels, travelled extensively for both business and pleasure, gardened, and generally continued with the business of living. On December 25, 2000, Bunny and John Wright were remarried. Bunny Wright died on February 25, 2001. Of her battle with cancer, she had this to say: "She died, and the cancer died with her. It was a draw."
