WHITE LIGHTNING BY MELISSA YI

Dr. Hope Sze expected a romantic weekend away at the Rumrunner’s Rest, a Windsor inn once famous for serving the best alcohol and shore dinners during Prohibition. Instead, she finds a set of human bones in the fireplace.

As Hope dives into the inn’s history, she discovers the legend of White Lightning, a handsome pilot who would fly liquor across the river to the Purple Gang in Detroit, and to Al Capone in Chicago.

Over the decades, at least two people have disappeared from this inn. Tonight, unless Hope unravels a century’s worth of clues, death may collect several more lives, including her own.

“This novel demonstrates familiarity with the conventions of mysteries without being constrained by them and with the realities of Canada’s medical world. Although the tone is light, the author is not afraid to introduce darker themes. The three intertwining mysteries and Hope herself provide a narrative by turns entertaining and insightful.
