There’s more to good and evil than meets the eye…
When human remains are found in her pre-war fixer-upper in an east Vancouver neighbourhood, Claire Dawson’s grand plans to fix the house — and her life — take a disturbing turn. Suspicious there might exist a relationship between the discovery and her own tragic past, Claire insinuates herself into the investigation, unknowingly placing herself in harm’s way and Homicide’s Detective Dylan Lewis in an impossible conflict of interest. And when Dylan’s grandmother, a Coast Salish medicine woman, wades into the mystery, challenging the demon whose earthly form is behind the murder, the three find themselves embroiled in a high-stakes battle where lines are blurred and worlds collide — but souls are ultimately freed.
“Baby Jane by M. A. Demers is a can’t put down, page-turning mystery thriller that will have you up late at night, a little afraid to go to sleep and wishing it were tomorrow so you could pick it up and keep reading.” – T. T. Thomas, Goodreads review, 5 STARS
“Baby Jane … twists expectations … A tight marriage of police procedural and supernatural thriller … [woven] in with a compelling First Nations magic-realistic tapestry … exploring both the best and worst of human desires.” – Scott Fitzgerald Gray, Amazon review, 4 STARS
“A compulsive page turner … well-paced, the main characters are well drawn and have a range of issues that make them flawed and human, and the plot has something to separate it from the crowd. I thought it was a great read and would happily recommend it!” – Booked Up, 5 STARS
“Wow! That was a roller coaster of a ride. Truly, truly blew me away with the thick content of the story and the beautiful way you wrote it. I simply could not stop and devoured it over two days. I loved the ending, but in all honesty I loved everything about the book, from start to finish.” – bookaddict1133, Wattpad
“Well written and suspenseful … a tightly written character study with elements of the supernatural woven throughout. Emotional and tense.” – Meghan, Kobo review, 5 STARS
