Excerpt #1:

Sergeant Winston Windflower blinked twice. He was sure his eyes were deceiving him. He doubted it was Sheila, his girlfriend and the love of his life, being led away in handcuffs. But when he saw her distinctive loving smile as she stepped into the RCMP van, he knew it was her.

“I can follow them over to Marystown to make sure she gets a ride back,” said Corporal Eddie Tizzard, Windflower’s second-in-command.

“No, I think she’s on her own on this one,” said Windflower as he scowled and walked away.

Windflower decided he needed to regroup because his spirit was as gray as the early December sky. He headed for the local café, the Mug-Up, for a cup of coffee and a reprieve from the gently falling snow. When he got there, he took a seat by himself but found the only warmth that greeted him was the steam from the coffee.
