Witty, charming, handsome and a skilled conversationalist, Alison Mornay’s ex‑husband is also a biology prof at Ottawa U. His specialty is a rare breed of frog found primarily on the east coast of Colombia. His colleagues and students love him; one of them even married him. But when a string of apparent heroin overdoses leads to the death of a very odd assortment of people – including Lee‑Ann Boudreaux, a human resources specialist at the university, and two Byward Market prostitutes – one male, one female – Detective Constables Morrow and Crowther start looking a little more deeply into Dr. Gerry Scott’s field of study, and the Ottawa U biology lab.
Other than cause of death, there doesn’t seem to be any connection between the victims, which makes Morrow and Crowther think they’re dealing with a serial killer who’s both highly intelligent and absolutely ruthless. But will they be able to cover the distance between Eastern Ontario and Muskoka fast enough to prevent a fourth murder? And will they get enough evidence to arrest their serial killer before he outwits them yet again?
Mystery, thriller, and medical drama, Terribilis is an uncomfortable journey into a 21st century heart of darkness.
