2005 Best New Canadian Christian Author Award

A policewoman finds redemption, aided by a man she suspects of murder. Linda Donner, a Boston native, travels north to rural Nova Scotia, and takes a post as a policewoman with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in hopes of finding balance in her life. Instead of a slower pace, things heat up as she becomes preoccupied with a controversial pastor she suspects is guilty of arson, murder and child abuse. She breaks into a church and finds the suspected pastor exorcising demons from a child. She believes she has caught him in the abuse act, but finds her own self powerless as she spirals into what appears to be a nervous breakdown. As she realizes she is fighting supernatural forces, she decides she must find God’s help--a God she had stopped believing in after a priest seduced her when she was a teenager. The only person who seems able to help is her chief suspect--the pastor.

“A gripping, credible story about human nature and the rediscovery of a relevant Christian faith. As a former Mountie, I found the author’s portrayal of the RCMP authentic. I had trouble putting The Defilers down. Mature beyond what one would expect for a first novel. I highly commend the book.”
--Dr. Allen Churchill, RCMP Chaplain, and former chair of the 1998 Ottawa Billy Graham Mission.
