Book launch & other events at PEC Libraries

PEClibraryBook launch for Crimes of Summer one of many events at the library

The launch of Robin Timmerman’s third book in the Middle Island Mystery series, entitled Crimes of Summer, will be held at the Picton branch library on Thursday, November 20 at 7p.m.

In this latest novel, we find the return of Officer Pete Jakes and his boss Chief Halstead, this time with a complicated double murder on their hands. Amid curious islanders suspicious of government officials searching for unexploded weaponry, and the typical island summer mischief, the two untangle the danger of devious suspects and modern day smuggling. Meanwhile Pete’s wife, Ali, has her own dark suspicions about the troubles on the lake.
Robin Timmerman’s two previous books in the series, Pity of the Winds and Season of Deceit, are both available at the library. She is a member of the Crime Writers of Canada.
