The Men of Melaque

img_4330

Who are the elusive men of Mexico? To us Gringos who flock south for the winter, if we pay attention, we might just catch a glimpse of the homosapien species. Our first exposure was at the Puerto Vallarta airport, where throngs of eager males threw themselves at arriving snowbirds in the hopes of snagging fares for the taxis and shuttles that were stacked up out front.

High Res4 & 5 Star Reviews from Goodreads and Kobo:

My favorite book thus far by Ed. I intended on reading just a few chapters today but his writing kept me so captivated and wanting more, I finished the book in hours. Looking forward to the next novel by this wonderful story-teller.    Dawn S.

 Captivating story based on the circumstances which unfortunately continue to occur on the infamous Highway of Tears in Northern British Columbia. While reading this book, I found myself re-processing the events well after I had put the book down, and then I couldn’t wait to get back into it! Compassion for the victims, as well as trying to analyze the thoughts of an isolated bushman, topped off with a touch of romance, Finding Hope will not disappoint.  Brenda B

This novel is based on the abused and murdered women in British Columbia. Precisely route #16. It held my interest, trying to figure out one of the killers—which I was able to do early on. It’s a Norm Strom book by Edmond Gagnon. Norm is a retired police officer who gets caught up in the search for one young woman who disappears. He helps the RCMP to find her and to solve some of the murders. It’s a hard book in some parts as the language is crude and some violence graphic. If you’re into crime and resolve you will enjoy this book of fiction based on fact.  Jackie R

The book was a good read, fast, and kept my interest going. The characters were just enough to identify with each one. A human story of all the girls that were lost and never found. The main characters were serious and funny. The writer wrote about highlights along the highways that made you feel like you were right there. The ending was suspenseful and kept me wondering.

The Two Bill’s – Part 2

IMG_3510-002

This story appears in my first book, A Casual Traveler

 The Way Back 

            Usually, going somewhere is more fun than coming back. Whenever I plan a trip I try to take that into account. I don’t know how everyone else feels, but I hate covering the same ground twice. I’d much rather make a loop and go out of my way, than drive down the same road more than once. Unless something is worth seeing again, from a different perspective.

            Cathryn and I had a great ride getting to Vancouver, but I knew I had my work cut out for me, trying to find an eventful and scenic way back home. The whole idea of the trip was to cover new ground, since both of us had been out west before. Seattle came to mind. Although I’d been there twice, I never had time to see more than a few token attractions on the waterfront.

Early Acclaim for Finding Hope

“Finding Hope, The Highway of Tears, is a fictional depiction of a true real-life horror story. Gagnon tells us the story of Hope, who goes missing along the notorious Highway #16, in northern B.C. and is sought by retired Detective Norm Strom. Engrossing plot, engaging characters, and superb imagery make this a hard story to put down. This well-written and timely account of a truly heart-wrenching problem, is well worth the read.”—Christine Hayton – Author, Samhain Publishing Ltd. 

“Fix yourself a cup of tea and settle in for a great rainy-day read. You’re not going to want to put down “Finding Hope.”  The author takes you on a haunting ride up western Canada’s Highway #16, from Calgary to Hyder, Alaska. Along the way, retired Detective Norm Strom meets Hope Lachance, and then helps the RCMP try to find her after she’s gone missing. Strom learns the real reason why the aboriginal people call the route, The Highway of Tears.” —Caroline Hartman – Author of Summer Rose

“Ed Gagnon weaves fiction and reality into an exciting story about the Canadian women who have gone missing along The Highway of Tears, in northern British Columbia. More than a book about crimes against women and the lack of attention from law enforcement, Finding Hope is about prejudice, despair, and the courage of one woman named Hope.”   – Ben Van Dongen – Co-Author of No Light Tomorrow
