Jacqueline Ryan knew her promotion to Homicide would rankle some feathers. The Detective Constable worries that the rest of the force won't be able to see past the color of her skin. And she's not about to let her new, overbearing partner stand in her way…

No-nonsense Inspector Paul Manziuk needs a vacation, not a murder case with an overeager newbie. But when a body is found at a ritzy Toronto house party, the new partners have no choice but to put aside their differences. After all, in a house full of smooth-talking lawyers, catty wives, and eccentric guests, anyone could have committed the foul deed…

As Manziuk and Ryan's investigation intensifies, the clues only become more perplexing; the alibis more muddled; and everyone has a motive. To solve the murder, the unlikely partners must learn to work together before the killer strikes again…

SHADED LIGHT: THE CASE OF THE TACTLESS TROPHY WIFE is the first novel in a series of classic-style whodunnits set in modern-day Toronto. If you like witty dialogue, large lists of suspects, and twists you won't see coming, then you'll love J.A. Menzies' puzzling mystery.

“Paul Manziuk and his new partner, Jacqueline Ryan, make an odd team—he’s white, an abrupt, patronizing veteran, while she’s a recently promoted, vivacious black woman—but… the two rub elbows and tempers to captivating effect.” Publishers Weekly
