Created by Sam Wiebe
Sam Wiebe, author of the raw, bruising (and Shamus-nominated) P.I. novel Last of the Independents (2014) returns with another damaged young Vancouver private eye, DAVE WAKELAND, in Invisible Dead (2016).
But don't be a chump and ignore this new one, thinking you've read it all before. Wakeland may not even be thirty yet, but he's already accumulated almost as much emotional damage and psychological scar tissue as wisdom.
Once again it's a young woman missing for far too long who's the catalyst, but this time it's not the disappearance of a friend's innocent young girl who haunts the detective.
Wakeland never knew Chelsea Loam, who disappeared eleven years earlier. But when he's hired to find her after all these years, he soon realizes she may have been a lot of things, but "innocent" doesn't seem to have ever been one of them. The trail soon leads to a convicted serial killer, a biker gang, far too many nasty secrets and far too many nasty (and dangerous) people who would rather those secrets were never exposed.
Vancouver's Sam Wiebe's crime fiction has been published internationally. Recent projects include audio adaptations of Hamlet and Frankenstein, an independent film script, and a follow-up novel, Cut You Down, which was published in February 2018.
