Murder at Mussel Cove is a moody mystery, set in a perfect atmosphere: a tiny village; salty sea air; rugged shorelines; dark secrets; and a huge mansion on a hill. People are being murdered, some by arson, others by killing force. Even worse, some suspect the children! Enter Sara, an American reporter fleeing a brutal boyfriend and seeking a big break in her new career in Canada. As she investigates the murders, Sara stumbles across some colourful characters, like the amputee who feeds her, the orphan who clings to her, and the cop who romances her. But who, or what, is the real killer? Only the novel’s shattering climax lets us know for sure!

Alistair MacLeod, Number One best-selling author of No Great Mischief, praises this book (on the front cover!) by saying:

“This is a fast-moving, action-packed novel filled with suspense. Hugh MacDonald writes with a sure hand.”

A thriller packed with sex, violence and some humour, this Maritimes mystery will sail from the shelves. This novel will be backed with a strong promotions campaign.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down! As a long time devotee of mysteries I really enjoyed this first effort by poet Hugh MacDonald. Solid characters, a Machiavellian plot, and Maritime setting combine for a page turning read. I look forward to Sara's next journalistic investgation, perhaps she will venture across the Northumberland Strait to MacDonald's native P.E.I.
