Author Bruce Fraser will be giving a presentation about his new novel The Jade Frog: A Chilcotin Mystery.

Author Bruce Fraser will be giving a presentation about his new novel The Jade Frog: A Chilcotin Mystery, at the Williams Lake Library on Thursday, March 12 starting at 6:30 p.m.

Books will also be available for purchase and signing. The event is part of a tour Fraser is making to present his book at Cariboo Regional District area libraries this month.

The Jade Frog: A Chilcotin Mystery, published by Granville Island Publishing in Dec., 2014 is the second novel in Fraser’s Chilcotin Mystery Trilogy, about love, honour, and revenge.

His first novel, On Potato Mountain (2010), is set in 1958, and begins when rancher, Brody Hanlon, is gunned down in his living room and his adopted son, Noah, is charged with his murder.

In The Jade Frog, the search for Brody Hanlon’s killer continues. Relying on the secrets of the land, Noah embarks on a quest to find the killer.

Spanning decades and immense territory, Fraser’s writing captures the beauty and spiritual influence of the Cariboo Chilcotin.

Ultimately, this series is not just a tale of love and mystery, but is also a story about an incredible land and its people.

Fraser will be at the 100 Mile Library Wednesday, March 11 at 6:30 p.m. and at the Quesnel Library on Friday, March 13 at 2 p.m.
