Silas Seaweed is back on the beat as the street-smart Coast Salish cop. A gardener is found dead and the prime suspects are two young local party girls. Silas is handed the case that soon takes a bloodier turn when a policeman's wife is killed. Silas begins to suspect that these murders and other events are related to the recent tide of gang-related crimes that has been sweeping British Columbia. Just as he draws closer to finding concrete evidence, Silas finds his own reputation in danger and is suspended from the police force. His quest to clear his name and find the killers leads him from Victoria's loud and steamy nightclubs and bars to the remote and quiet islands of Desolation Sound.

The fifth mystery in this popular series, Seaweed in the Soup is a thrilling and suspenseful tale that skilfully combines a hard-boiled mystery narrative with the mythology of the Coast Salish.

Stanley Evans is the author of the four previous Silas Seaweed Mysteries; Seaweed on the Street, Seaweed on Ice, Seaweed under Water and Seaweed on the Rocks. A former college instructor, he began his writing career in newspapers and magazines. He has written two plays and is the author of Outlaw Gold (1996) and Snow-Coming Moon (1997)...

Editorial Reviews

“This series just keeps getting better and better. Rich descriptors evoke colour and emotion . . . In places the high energy feels like a hundred-yard dash.”—Hamilton Spectator  

“As clever and sparkly as the first three. Evans’ combination of  light mystery and Salish mythology is fun.”—Globe and Mail
