The Cariboo Regional District Library announced today that author Bruce Fraser will be visiting the 100 Mile House, Williams Lake and Quesnel Branches in support of his new novel, The Jade Frog: A Chilcotin Mystery, published by Granville Island Publishing in Dec., 2014. This is the second novel in Bruce Fraser’s Chilcotin Mystery Trilogy, about love, honour, and revenge.
The first novel, On Potato Mountain (2010), is set in 1958, and begins when rancher, Brody Hanlon, is gunned down in his living room and his adopted son, Noah, is charged with his murder. In The Jade Frog, the search for Brody Hanlon’s killer continues. Relying on the secrets of the land, Noah embarks on a quest to find the killer.
Spanning decades and immense territory, Fraser’s writing captures the beauty and spiritual influence of the Cariboo Chilcotin. Ultimately, this series is not just a tale of love and mystery, but is also a story about an incredible land and its people.
Bruce Fraser will be giving a presentation of the book, followed by a question and answer session. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
