About the Book

Meet Chris Prior, your not-so-average down-on-the-ropes private eye–broke, hard-drinking and cynical–and suffering from a crisis of confidence. And things don’t improve when she agrees to tackle a murder case involving an escort service and a rich, chess-playing university professor, which takes her from the seedy back streets of Vancouver to the quiet neighbourhoods of suburban Toronto.

Pawn to Queen is a classic open-ended murder mystery featuring a cynical but likeable detective, Chris Prior, who investigates a young Vancouver escort’s murder.
