Maureen Jennings emigrated to Canada from the UK at the age of seventeen. Best known for the Murdoch Mysteries series, the TV adaptation of which has been running since 2008, Jennings has also launched a new contemporary series featuring a forensic profiler named Christine Morris. She lives in Toronto, Canada with her husband, two cats and two dogs.
"Jennings's tour of fin-de-siecle Toronto... is by turns bracing and chilling. A surprisingly tender tale of slavery, addiction, violence and revenge served ice-cold." (Kirkus Reviews)"
