The Latest Academy News! See it... here

Detective Murdock is Back! Our Holiday Luncheon speaker's write up in this Saturday’s, November 18th, Globe & Mail, is a short book review of Maureen Jenning’s lastest novel. It’s called “Let Darkness Bury the Dead.” The review is written by the Globe’s go-to crime fiction writer, Margaret Cannon, who tells us “the good news for Decective Murdoch fans is that he’s back after a long absence” and that “this is one of the best [books] in the series”. Maureen’s talk will obviously be a highlight of our luncheon. Thank you to the Committee for snagging her! Reserve a spot at the Academy Holiday Luncheon before Nov!
