Thunderbird's Wake

BWL Publishing Inc. | Stillwaters Run Deep


Haida shaman Charlie Stillwaters convinces Carol Ainsworth, a Vancouver detective, to join him as he breaks his way into a high security prison. The duo are determined to find out who killed the previous native elder before all lightning and thunder breaks loose. 

---

Just when I was beginning to wonder where the next great Canadian story teller would emerge from, Frank Talaber has written a modern crime mystery with a twist. In "Thunderbird’s Wake” Talaber weaves the richness of Canada’s west coast aboriginal spirituality into the science of modern forensics. CSI comes to Haida Gwaii as the shaman and the detective conduct an investigation that will take them and the reader on a journey to a place where murder, redemption and ancient mysticism intersect.

---

Frank Talaber was born in Beaverlodge, Alberta, where the claim to fame is a fox with flashing eyes in the only pub, yeah, big place, that's why his family left when he was knee high to a grasshopper and moved to Edmonton, Alberta. Eventually he got tired of ten months of winter and two of bad slush and moved to Chilliwack, BC. Great place, Cedar trees, can cut the grass nine months of the year and, oh, he says it does snow here once or twice. Just enough to have to find out what happened to the bloody snow shovel and have to use it. GRRR. He's spent most of his life either fixing cars or managing automotive shops at fifty-six is found to be blessed now with two children (okay, he had them earlier and they've grown up and began living on their own), two loopy cats and a bonkers-mad English wife. His insatiable zest for life, the environment, and the little muses that keep twigging on his pencil won’t let his writing pad stay blank.

Shuttered Seduction

BWL Publishing Inc.


He only wanted to steal her company. She only wanted Not to fall in love with him. Both had dark secrets they didn't want revealed. All Roy wanted to do was seduce Julia-Rae and convince her to sell him her company. Julia-Rae wanted to shut him out of her heart like every other man that got close. Only what do you do when you fall in madly in love with the enemy and the enemy with you. Will the dark secrets they hold tear you apart?

---

The book opens and ends on a mountain top, but it is the valleys, the bungee jumping, the cross-dressing and hiking in between that rips one through this book. Even better than the funny moments (did I forget jumping into a vat of jelly) is this, can the fiery redhead take down the bad boy, who is out to destroy her? I ain't telling except for this, what happens when the enemy falls in love with you and you with them?  Happens in this book. Great humor and passion, excellent read.

Vancouver's Spirits

BWL Publishing Inc. | Stillwaters Run Deep


Vancouver’s mayor is brutally slain in Stanley Park. His family is missing, no clues. So begins Carol’s first big detective case. Toss in a hot male reporter. Vengeful bikers, a sexually starved succubus, a boatload of out of sync demi-gods and a disappearing shaman who holds all the clues. Oh, it’s going to be a fun night in the park.

---

A gritty book flavored with primitive urges and mysticism. As I followed Carol's foray into the realm of shamanism, I realized that it took a special touch to pull off a complicated plot the way you did. Your prose was concise, powerfully descriptive, the dialogue lively, and your photographic mastery of the fixtures and streets in Vancouver's hub, in clear evidence.

The Joining

BWL Publishing Inc. | The Ainsworth Chronicles


Undercover at Victoria’s Empress Hotel, police detective Carol Ainsworth has to deal with two American Mafia cartels coming in for a wedding.

Or so it seems until young boys start disappearing, a crazy old psychic woman shows up bearing a crystal skull and one of the mobsters is found hanged in his room by what appears to be a ghost. Carol quickly discovers that Victoria has several satanic cults, more resident ghosts than all of Canada and something is rattling their chains

---

The ghosts of Victoria, BC are restless. The Joining is a riveting read for crime fiction lovers and those fascinated by tales of hauntings. Talaber expertly draws you into a multi-leveled world of local history, crime, and the supernatural , where a blue fairy , comprised of two sorrowful creatures, is more powerful than it knows. A perfect read for those foggy west coast nights.
