FRAMED BY WAYNE KERR
Her life was picture perfect…until she was framed for murder.
After surviving ten brutal years in prison for a murder she didn’t commit, former Toronto homicide detective Reggie Swann is released, thanks to her tenacious mother, a new forensic test and a clever lawyer. But she quickly discovers getting her old life back will be next to impossible. The Toronto Police Service doesn’t want her,Reggie’s husband has remarried, and the real killer is still out there.
Clearing her name and finding the real murderer is Reggie’s number one priority. However, as a favor to the man who got her conviction overturned, she reluctantly agrees to help with a separate investigation in her hometown of Penticton, British Columbia. Wealthy socialite Amy Connelly is missing, after a very public argument with her husband. Blood is found in their kitchen and on the deck of their yacht. This leads to one obvious conclusion: Stan Connelly killed his wife and dumped her body in Lake Okanagan. Or did he?
Is it possible Reggie’s two cases, which span a decade and five provinces, are related?

“Framed sucks you in from the first page and turns you inside out as the story unfolds. A must read psychological thriller.” — Carolyn Bowen, author of The Long Road Home
“The process of finding motive, perp, and justice from behind prison walls opens Framed; but as the story moves beyond its initial purpose, readers are drawn into an investigative piece that sifts through witnesses as it provides a complicated and absorbing story that keeps posing new possibilities and then disproving them. Before it's over, others are framed, as well. And the modus operandi and results hold a sinister motive that few could have guessed from the beginning. In a story where 'who didn't do it' is just as important as 'whodunnit', detective and investigative fiction readers receive an absorbing probe of how an ex-cop framed in a professional manner becomes a PI with license to investigate anything and everyone. The evolution of justice and exoneration makes for a spirited puzzler that will delight readers looking for intriguing stories and absorbing twists and turns of detective work.” —Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
