Author Kay Stewart aims to write "crime fiction with a social conscience". Her novels follow her female hero, Royal Canadian Mounted Police Constable Danutia Dranchuk, as she investigates mysterious deaths and pursues justice for the victims. Though Stewart often collaborates with her husband, Chris Bullock, an English professor, she gets all the credit for this suspenseful tale.
Actress Liza Ross has performed over 100 dramas for BBC Radio and has won an Earphones Award from Audiofile Magazine for her narration. In Sitting Lady Sutra, Ross commands the perceptive voice of Constable Dranchuk as well as a wide range of other characters with various accents.
RCMP Constable Danutia Dranchuk is investigating a mysterious death at Sitting Lady Falls. The evidence she gathers points to three separate stories, leaving her with more questions than answers. Is this murder connected to two earlier killings of Aboriginal women? Are all three the work of the same killer? Some of the details are hitting a little too close to home, and Danutia is forced to examine her friendship with forensics head Corporal Surinder Sharma and his family.
Deftly woven into Danutia's investigation are the stories of two other characters. Parolee Ritchie Taylor fears that the unidentified body from the waterfall is his estranged daughter's, who was supposed to meet him after his release from prison, but never showed. Awkward busboy Trav can't seem to help behaving suspiciously.
Author Kay Stewart pulls the threads together in an unexpected and dramatic resolution at Sitting Lady Falls.
