Canadian-Latvian author Ilze Bērziņš, author of Happy Girl, A True Love Story and a number of murder mysteries, is about to release her new book, Silver Shoes. The book is Bērziņš’ first “medical mystery” and narrates how she hopes to overcome a common ailment in our aging bodies. According to Bērziņš, “I’ve tried for humour, laced with suspense”.
The book’s back cover blurb reads: “Plagued by joint pain and disdainful of an orthopedist’s insistence that she needs surgery, the author has put herself on a tedious healing regime, including unpronounceable supplements, foul-tasting herb tea, and regular pool exercises. In the process, she finds herself in the middle of a muddle involving a pod of whales, a pair of treacherous Russians, a hit-and-run, and a hostile, hapless woman who eventually becomes her friend.
Threats are made, but will shots be fired? It all depends on Ilze’s investigative powers and her husband George’s ability to think on his feet. Is this a true crime story or the fantasy of the author’s fertile mind? You decide!”
Published by Albert Street Press the book is available from the author’s website and Amazon.
