Book Summary:

In rain-drenched Vancouver, detectives Dion and Leith work to separate truth from lies in two seemingly unrelated cases. February is the month of romance, but in North Vancouver it’s also become the month of murder. While the North Shore RCMP slog through the rain in the search for whoever left a young woman to die in the Riverside Secondary School parking lot — their first clue a Valentine’s Day card — a toddler mysteriously vanishes from a Riverside Drive home in the midst of a dinner party. With Constable JD Temple's full attention on the parking lot murder, Constables Dave Leith and Cal Dion work the kidnap ... until a tenuous connection is made between the two cases, along with the thinnest ray of hope that the child could be alive and well in the hands of a childless couple. But when more tragedy rains down on the North Shore, lies must be unveiled before the ugly truth can emerge.

Book Summary:

Collector's item, landmark in the history of the tour guide, snapshot of Britain in the 1860s – Bradshaw's Handbook deserves a place on the bookshelf of any traveller, railway enthusiast, historian or anglophile. Produced as the British railway network was reaching its zenith, and as tourism by rail became a serious pastime for the better off, it was the first national tourist guide specifically organized around railway journeys, and to this day offers a glimpse through the carriage window at a Britain long past. This is a facsimile of the actual book – often referred to as 'Bradshaw's Guide' – that inspired the 'Great British Railway Journeys' television series, possibly the only surviving example of the 1863 edition. It is an exact copy with a removable belly-band.

La mémoire est tout. Après une blessure sur le ring, le boxeur amateur Leith Wenz se réveille pour découvrir que ses plus récents souvenirs ont trois ans de retard. Déconnecté et luttant pour affronter sa nouvelle réalité, Leith doit de nouveau faire face à des révélations douloureuses sur sa famille. Son frère est là pour le soutenir mais c'est le visage familier de Zach, un homme qu’on lui présente comme son meilleur ami, qui lui fournit le calme dont il a besoin. Jusqu'à ce que la présence de Zach commence à attiser des sentiments que Leith ne peut pas expliquer. Pour Zach, être oublié par son amant est atroce. Il cache soigneusement la vérité à Leith pour les protéger tous les deux d'une douleur supplémentaire. Son désarroi réprimé trouve un exutoire dans le vlogging - un blog qui utilise des vidéos numériques au lieu de texte - où il avoue ses craintes et sa douleur à un Internet sans visage. Mais quand Leith commence à s'ouvrir à lui, les choix de Zach reviennent le hanter. Au bout du compte, Leith doit poser à son cœur les questions auxquelles sa mémoire ne peut plus répondre.
