Summary, etc.:
A finalist for the Best First Novel Award at the Arthur Ellis Awards. "Sins don't destroy people here. Dreams do." Enter the premier's old friend Harry Asher-lawyer, former hockey star, self-styled intellectual, and recent divorc-̌who is hired to dig into the incident. And it isn't long before Asher's investigation threatens to expose a chain of corruption that implicates many of the province's most powerful citizens-including the province's legendary now-senile ex-premier-as well as its most cherished founding myths. In Where the Bodies Lie, Mark Lisac (author of Alberta Politics Uncovered and The Klein Revolution) draws upon his decades of experience as a reporter at Alberta's provincial legislature to craft an absorbing debut novel-part political thriller, part fable-that opens up timeless themes of friendship, love, the inescapability of grief, the weight of history, and the nature of truth.
