Wanda Canada. Island Murders. Wilmington, N.C.: Coastal Carolina Press, 2001.

Figure Eight Island, the exclusive resort community near Wilmington, seems an unlikely place for a crime wave, but dead bodies are showing up all over the island. The first suspect is Carroll Davenport, a local developer who has had a few too many friends and relatives who died violent deaths. But Carroll is soon cleared and decides to pursue the case on her own. In the course of investigating the increasingly complicated case, Carroll covers a lot of ground, visiting many sites in the Wilmington area that will be familiar to locals.

    We are asked this question more than any other. Readers love these books. Back in 2011 I learned that Ms. Canada has written a third book in the Carroll Davenport series but that she hadn’t found a publisher for it. I checked my usual sources this morning and this still seems to be the case–that third book has not been published. If any publishers read this blog, I hope that they take note of the eager audience for Ms. Canada’s next book.

    I was very disappointed to learn that the third book has not been published. I read both of Ms. Canada’s books and I love them. Hopefully a publisher will realize the need for quality writing and put a long string of her books to print.
