about

A literary mystery where the people and the settings in the exotic East are paramount.

Two entwined mysteries unfold in two time periods in Singapore - one in the present and the other in the 1920s. Artist Maris Cousins has lived in Singapore for four years, but the sudden death of her mentor, gallery owner Peter Stone, causes her to stop painting and leave Singapore to reconnect with her family in Canada. There she becomes immersed in the fictional stories of love and betrayal from Singapore's past - in first editions left to her by Stone - written by a famous early-20th-century author, E. Sutcliffe Moresby.

Drawn back to Singapore and the gallery, she searches for answers to the mystery of three people - a writer, his young wife, and their baby - who seem to be linked to Stone. But along the way, Maris becomes caught up in circumstances involving smuggling and possibly murder.

What elevates The Scarlet Macaw from most other mysteries is its fervent grasp of the power of stories, and how important they are in providing a sense of self. - National Post
