Sins of the Fathers

Charlene Butler, a.k.a. Charlie, is beautiful, independent, and a successful pub owner in downtown Montreal, but prefers not to discuss her past, or the main reason for her success. When she anonymously receives strange letters and the police don’t show an interest in the case, she is convinced by Frank, her best friend, to hire a private investigator to help her solve the mystery. However, PI Simm seems to have a few secrets of his own.

Charlie and Simm join forces when the harassment escalates from letters to explicit threats. Their investigation leads them from the safety of her home, through Montreal’s underworld, to organized crime in Dublin, Ireland. What they discover contradicts Charlie’s most fundamental beliefs in herself and ultimately makes her doubt her own character.

    Hi Anita, Loved being with you, Stevie and the family Saturday night. Am enjoying your book so much, I started to read it before I got on my flight back to Montreal yesterday, I was so engrossed in it that they had to pratically kick me off the plane, just kidding. It is really good, can’t wait to get back to it. Keep them coming!

    My niece and I met you at your book-signing at Chapters in Pointe-Claire…I read your latest book, ‘Sons of the Father’…it was absolutely brilliant…from beginning to end the suspense was steady and suspicions as to the culprit could not have been guessed…So few mystery writers today are able to do that …You are a very talented Canadian author!…I now look forward to reading your first novel, ‘Betrayal’…Hoping to read many more of your writings in the near future!…Many thanks and all the best in life to you and your Irish husband!…Sandra


    • Thank you so much, Sandra! You certainly made my day. I very much enjoyed my visit to Chapters. I met so many wonderful people, old friends and new ones. Hopefully, some day, we’ll meet again.
