Bestselling mystery novelist Lily Harrington has been found hanging in her home in the tiny, oddball haven of Point Roberts, Washington, and all signs point to suicide. Worried the truth will be buried with her, Lily teams up with Marcus Mantova, the sexy detective of her novels, to influence the investigation and catch her killer. Yet no sooner has Lily come to terms with the existence of Marcus, the womanizing egomaniac she had thought a product of her imagination, than dead Whatcom County detective Penelope Winters also worms her way onto the case. Lies, frauds, and competing agendas take Lily on a roller-coaster ride over heaven and earth until, at last, she discovers the truth and another chance at life.
Author M. A. Demers returns to the world of fiction with an exploration of the nature of creativity, and continues her examination of the interrelationship between the spirit and physical worlds, rebirth, and the journey we take to get there. Darkly humorous yet lighter than her first mystery novel, Baby Jane, The Point Between is in equal measure funny, thought-provoking, poignant, and suspenseful.
