Delany, Vicki

Summary: In the bucolic mountain town of Trafalgar, British Columbia, a young woman is found dead of a heroin overdose, her baby lying at her side. While this should be an open-and-shut drug case, restraint marks on the victim suggest to Probationary Constable Molly Smith and Sergeant John Winters that the death might not have been completely accidental. Sequel to In the shadow of the glacier.
