Content descriptions

General Note: Includes preview of An old, cold grave.
Summary, etc.: "After the turbulence of her first several weeks in King's Cove, former British intelligence officer Lane Winslow wants nothing more than to finally settle into a nice, quiet life in her new community. But when the body of a Russian man is found at the local hot springs, Lane's expertise—and remarkable linguistic abilities—prove to be invaluable to the case. The investigation, led by Inspector Darling, points to the Soviet Union, where Stalin's purges are eliminating enemies. Further evidence reveals that the reach of Stalin's agents snakes all the way into a harmless Doukhobor community not far from King's Cove. Lane's complicated relationship with Darling is intensified by the perils of the case—and by the discovery of her father's death during the war."--
