The Fortunate Brother

ebook
Winner of the 2017 Arthur Ellis Awards for Excellence in Canadian Crime Writing, Best Novel
Winner of the 2017 Thomas Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award
A powerful tale of a family reeling from the tragic loss of a son, while facing a mysterious murder on their doorstep—told by one of Canada's most beloved voices

After being uprooted from their fishing outport, the Now family is further devastated by the tragic loss of their eldest son, Chris, who died working on an Alberta oil rig. Kyle Now is still mourning his older brother when the murder of a local bully changes everything. The victim's blood is found on the family's pier, and suspicion falls first on an alienated wife, and then finally on the troubled Now family.
But behind this new turmoil, Chris's death continues to plague the family. Father Sylvanus Now drowns his sorrow in a bottle, while mother Addie is facing breast cancer. And the children fight their own battles as the tension persists between Kyle and his sister, Sylvie, over her role in their brother's death.
A cast of vivid characters surrounds the Now family, some intriguing, others comical—all masterfully crafted. As the murder mystery unfolds, other deeper secrets are revealed. Wise in the ways of the heart, The Fortunate Brother is a moving family drama from beloved storyteller Donna Morrissey.
