Mysterious crying in the middle of the night… a strange light climbing where there are no stairs…

Kate doesn’t like vacations—she’d much rather stay on the job as chief of police of tiny Mendenhall, Manitoba. But her niece Amanda has been working too hard at her fledgling catering company. So Kate rents a cottage in Gimli, a beach town on the shore of Lake Winnipeg. Things go awry when in the middle of the very first night they hear a woman crying from the cottage next door. When Kate checks it out, however, there’s no one there.

Unsettled, Kate and Amanda start looking into the strange events next door. Then a series of thefts and arson attacks in Mendenhall draw Kate back home. To her surprise, the investigation into the Mendenhall crimes and the Gimli mystery spiral ever closer to each other. Then Amanda disappears and Kate will have to use all her skills if she is to protect her niece and right historic wrongs.

The Weeping Woman is the third in the Mendenhall Mysteries series featuring Kate Williams, chief of police. Other books in the series include The Shoeless Kid and The Tuxedoed Man.
