Nora Kelly grew up in New Jersey and spent summers on Cape Cod. While living in Cambridge she wrote her first Gillian Adams mystery, In the Shadow of King’s (reprinted by Poisoned Pen Press, 1999).Old Wounds, her fourth, won the 1999 Arthur Ellis Best Novel Award from the Canadian Crime Writers Association. The author lives in Vancouver, BC, where she teaches part-time.From Publishers Weekly:
Vancouver history professor Gillian Adams and Scotland Yard Detective Chief Inspector Edward Gisborne meet in Cambridge, England, for what becomes a working vacation after chemist Wendy Fowler is found dead in a university laboratory. Clever and unashamedly ambitious, Wendy was resented by some of her male academic colleagues; her habitual brusqueness put off even the women with whom she did volunteer work at the local pregnancy counseling center. Loaned to the Cambridge constabulary, Edward looks for a killer who clearly had inside knowledge of the lab's setup. Meanwhile Gillian, whose friend Bee Hamilton also works at the counseling center, keeps those there apprised of the investigation, which heats up when a teenage client is found in a shallow grave in woods not far from Bee's home. While Kelly ( My Sister's Keeper ) effectively integrates her feminist ideas with the story line as her levelheaded sleuths work towards a solution, most readers will probably wish for a few more puzzle crumbs along the way: until late in the game, the biggest clue is only that someone opposed to the main cast's accepted politics could have commited the dirty deeds.
