Born in Sudbury, Ontario, Shirley Shea, currently writes in Toronto. She has received many awards for her work in radio writing, broadcasting, and advertising, including the first Alberta Canadian Women's Press Club award for news. Victims: A Pound of Flesh, her first novel, marks her transition to fiction after many years of writing non-fiction. She recently completed two other novels.
Sylvia Jenning does not like it when her husband, a criminal lawyer, defends the guilty. But when one of his former clients is murdered, she watches David Jenning take on a different role: tracking down a serial killer who has terrorized the city for months. He is helped by Craig Faron, a friend whose involvement is more than professional, the ever-rumpled, ace reporter Joe Parsons, and Sylvia herself. Their investigations lead to a shocking discovery in this gripping and provocative novel which pits modern justice against Old Testament justice.
