The Running Girl
A Jean-Claude Keyes MysteryBook - 1995
It is supposed to be a fine February weekend: cold and crisp, with clear sunny skies. The forecasts do not mention murder...
Jean-Claude Keyes, following his furniture to his new house in Stratford, is driving west with his Toronto editor when a savage blizzard begins.
Seeking shelter with a motley crew of strangers forced off the highway by the blowing snow, Keyes is trapped in the centre of a different kind of storm: the storm around a murder at the Blue Bayou Motel.
Who pulls the trigger on that deadly little gun? The motel's cook and co-owner, mysterious Oswald Feist? Itinerant musician Moanin' Joe McKendricks? Or is the real murderer stalking the rooms of the Blue Bayou, hidden by the ice-white swirling wind and frigid darkness?
