Iona Whishaw

Iona Whishaw’s Lane Winslow mystery series has been called “relentlessly exciting.” First successfully introduced in A Killer in King’s Cove in 2016, war-weary ex-intelligence officer Lane Winslow settles in BC’s interior after the horrors of the Second World War. Since then the amateur sleuth has earned more enthusiastic readers and critics through the next seven books: Death in a Darkening Mist, An Old, Cold Grave, It Begins in Betrayal (shortlisted for a Lefty Award for the Best Historical Mystery Novel), A Sorrowful Sanctuary, A Deceptive Devotion, A Match Made for Murder, and her most recent A Lethal Lesson. Whishaw, whose mother was a spy during World War Two, has peopled her novels with compelling characters, intricate plot lines and twists, and writing that is rich with details and historical facts.  Canadian Mystery Reviews called Whishaw’s work “seriously good storytelling that continues to earn its place among the finest mystery writing in Canada.”
