Experience the mystery of the Canadian wilderness in "Due North: A Canadian Plane Crash Mystery" by Melanie Jackson.

With the RCMP and the Russian Mafia vying for the treasure on board the plane, the quiet town is thrust into the spotlight. Join Butterscotch and the eccentric residents of McIntyre's Gulch as they unravel the secrets of the crash. This light and entertaining read is the first in the bestselling Butterscotch Jones Mystery Series, perfect for fans of indie book titles and those seeking a thrilling adventure in the Great White North.

Publisher Description:

Welcome to the Gulch... funny things happen in the middle of nowhere.

Butterscotch Jones thought that living in the far north provided enough peril to contend with until a private plane crashed outside her hometown of McIntyre's Gulch, Manitoba, Canada. The treasure inside the plane soon attracted both the RCMP and the Russian Mafia. For a town built upon isolation and secrecy, the citizens faced very public exposure.

"A light, fun read with an eccentric cast of characters who bring the village of MacIntyre's Gulch to delightful life."
—Lisa Cach, author of "Wake Unto Me"

McIntyre’s Gulch has long provided refuge to those needing to disappear off the face of the planet. Most donning red hair, the residents of the Gulch prefer to say to one another what little they have to say in a mish-mash of English and Gaelic. Unless conversing with Whiskey Jack in which the conversation is likely to just be a mish-mash. There’s comfort in the form of warmth, food and drink to be had at the Lonesome Moose, the downtown saloon and community meeting place that constitutes the bulk of downtown. There’s comfort in the knowledge that Big John will be opining vociferously from behind the bar on the latest news flown into town by the Wings with the night’s delivery.

Due North is the first book in Melanie Jackson's bestselling Butterscotch Jones Mystery Series.
