by M. E. Rowe
Nothing disturbs a small western New York town like a murder. When a woman is found floating in an Erie Canal lock, movie rental store owner and hyposomniac Rebekah Socrates has no idea she’s related to the victim. But after her Canadian half-brother, an inheritance, and ex-pat Tamils show up, Rebekah is suddenly knee-deep in people from over the border and neck-deep in complicated relationships.
Sleeping little offers Rebekah Socrates time to work two jobs and watch every movie ever made. But when the body of her father’s wife is found floating in the Erie Canal lock of her hometown, Rebekah is yanked from routine into intrigue.
Rebekah, wanting to prove her half-brother innocent of the crime, joins forces with an inconveniently attractive reporter, and together they uncover the double life of the dead woman. Following leads from New York to Toronto, from yacht yards to Chinatown, from gambling houses to seedy bars, Rebekah’s small-town sensibilities are rattled by the dark undercurrents of the city.
