About J. A. Menzies

While I’d hate to stumble on a real body under any circumstances, I have a thing about noticing the “perfect” locations for finding mythical bodies. In order not to waste this fascinating (and hopefully, unusual) skill, I decided to write mysteries.

I’m a member of various writers’ organizations, including Sisters in Crime and Crime Writers of Canada. I also teach workshops for writers. I especially enjoy sharing some of my secrets on developing plots. (One of my favorite reviews, from Library Journal, called me a “master of plotting.”)

Human bones are found in a park by a veterinary student who spies an apparently lost puppy. He then notifies the police and they are able to determine that it was a man dead for less than twenty years and that he has two major skull fractures. With due diligence they are able to come close and then positively identify the victim and his family. There is much hard and unpleasant work for the investigating team and also for the family before the truth is brought out. Excellent work by the team, the author, and in raising awareness of the pain and problems of the families of people who have gone missing.
I now understand that this is one in a series, and I expect that I will read more of them because this one is so well done.
