The latest murder mystery by Latvian-Canadian writer Ilze Berzins is scheduled for publication on Nov. 26, the author has announced. Titled Kolka, the story takes place in Canada, Latvia and Sweden.
Beginning with the disappearance of a woman, the novel takes the reader to two continents and three countries through the eyes of Birdie Finch, a friend of the missing woman. The story is told from a first-person perspective, according to Berzins.
The book is published by Ottawa-based Albert Street Press, which has published Berzins’ other titles, including last year’s Riga Blanca, Riga Mortis (2002), A Tear in God’s Eye (2001), Revenge on the Rideau (2000) and Death in the Glebe (1999).
Berzins became widely known in the North American Latvian community with publication in 1997 of Happy Girl, a controversial look at her experiences trying to repatriate to Latvia.
The book costs USD 25 (including postage) and may be ordered direct from the author by sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
