The return of Wiki Coffin

Readers of marine historian and mystery writer Joan Druett's acclaimed Wiki Coffin series of nautical crime novels will be pleased to see that Druett finally added to the terrific four book series in recent months, with the release of THE BECKONING ICE, an ebook.

Since the publication of DEADLY SHOALS, the fourth book in the series on part-Maori linguist Wiki Coffin (who sails the nineteenth century seas on US ships, playing investigator as strange happenings and deaths occur), the striking character has been restricted to short stories appearing in the likes of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine and Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine. So it's great to see Wiki back in a full-length novel again.

I'll publish more about this book (just scored myself a copy today) in the near future, but for now just wanted to give you all a heads-up, as I think Druett is a terrific writer, and provides something kind of cool in the mystery genre, with her mix of maritime history and murder. I'd definitely recommend checking her out.

You can read more about the book on her website here.
