Product description

Product Description

Murders happen. But not with employees of the same company in Oil Camps in the high Arctic and Northern Canada. Two detectives, one from Alaska and one from Canada are given the case. They find the murders are connected. Now, they have to work together to find out why the victims were silenced. What secrets did their deaths conceal?


Frank Mueller, the Alaskan Detective is close to retirement. He’s been through three marriages and two stints in rehab. He is on probation with the force. He knows the Anchorage Police department has given him this case because they don’t want it investigated fully and there’s no booze in the Arctic oil camps.


Bernadette Callahan, the Canadian Detective, is in her mid thirties with a lot to prove on the force. She is Cree Indian and Irish, raised on a native reservation in Northern Canada. She’s been ingrained with the ways of the ‘people,’ by her grandmother that have given her instincts.  Her instincts tell her there is something more than four dead people—someone is settling a score. The real crime will happen soon.


The oil companies think the deaths are bad for publicity they want them solved quickly. The detectives are under pressure to come up with a verdict they know is wrong.


Callahan begins to unravel a series of unlikely suspects. A Chemistry Professor with a grudge against big oil, a Mexican low life gangster and Wall Street Executives. How are they connected?


Something is about to happen to oil supplies in the Arctic. The two Detectives can sense it. They know it’s real—can they convince others to act?


This novel is the first in Bernadette Callahan Detective Mystery/Thriller series. A female detective in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, where being a hardheaded woman who uses her instincts is not always welcome.

WOW! What a book! I can't say enough good things about Mr. Nicholson and this book. The pace is good, the suspense is good and it has some great twists and turns. For those of us who have never traveled to Alaska and Canada, it was a refreshing venue. And best of all, the ending really caught me by surprise.


About the Author

LYLE NICHOLSON was born in British Columbia, Canada in 1952. He is the youngest of three sons born to a father who was a cook, and a mother who was a waitress. His father, who died when Lyle was 15, was a storyteller and an avid reader, something that Lyle adopted at an early age and never forgot. His life would lead him to travels in Europe, then five years in a Monastery. He found out he was not a good Monk, as poverty was easy-it was the chastity and obedience that was a bit of a stumbling block. He left the Monastery in 1979, and met and married his wife in 1982. There were several years where Lyle tried numerous businesses that either failed or he was fired. He hadn't found his calling. Lyle spent two years working in the Security industry, providing Services and Systems for large oil companies in Calgary, Alberta, the nerve center for Canada's oil. And then in 1988 he started his own company to sell safety work wear to oil companies in Canada and Alaska. His company was a success, and he retired in 2011, and began a career in writing. Writing was always one of his passions. He now lives in Kelowna, British Columbia with his wife of thirty plus years, where he indulges in his second career of writing, fine cooking and fine wines.
