Multi-genre author Susan Glickman seems to move effortlessly between fiction, poetry, writing for young readers and non-fiction. Just when it seems like she's tackled every genre, she shows readers she's got even more skills in reserve, publishing a mystery novel this spring: Safe as Houses (Cormorant Books).
Safe as Houses tells the story of a murder in Toronto's tony Hillcrest Village. When Liz and Maxime, two local residents, find themselves on the case, it seems at first like an intellectual exercise, a puzzle to be solved. But the real danger and violence of the situation becomes all too apparent, and Liz and Maxime finds themselves in uncharted territory.
