Jenny Willson is a hard-edged, caustic-witted warden from Banff National Park who considers poachers and ladder-climbing bureaucrats equally repulsive and worthy of the same painful fate. Does keeping her promise to protect her park from them mean crossing lines and putting her career at risk …?

When Willson discovers animals disappearing from Canada’s mountain parks, she begins a complex investigation that follows a trail of deceit, distraction and murder. With a growing list of victims, animal and human, Willson finds herself in a race for justice that crisscrosses the Canada-U.S. border and pushes Willson to a place from which she might not return.

No Place for Wolverines (Available 2018)

When National Park Warden Jenny Willson initiates a covert inquiry into a proposed ski hill in Yoho National Park, she’s quickly drawn into a web of political, environmental and criminal intrigue that threatens to tear apart a small British Columbia town, pitting neighbour against neighbour, friend against friend, family against family.
After a wolverine researcher dies in a mysterious fire, Willson forms an uneasy alliance with an RCMP corporal and an Idaho-based investigative journalist to expose the truth behind the ski hill project. With characteristic tenacity, she discovers that perception differs from reality. Willson ends up in a show-down with the American proponent, with her own agency and with the political puppeteers who pull strings in the shadows.

In Rhino We Trust (Available in 2019)

In this third novel in the Jenny Willson mystery series, Willson joins an American colleague on a secondment to assist Namibian officers trying to stem the loss of elephants, rhinos and other iconic species from their country. But the plan changes dramatically when Willson finds herself in the cross-hairs of a conspiracy of wildlife poachers, backed by a shadowy network of international buyers, who are prepared to eliminate any obstacles to their success. And that includes Willson and her colleague.
