No Blood RelativeBook - 1995
Late one warm June night, a young woman dies in a car accident on the rural highway that runs between the village of Rose Hill and the small city of Crooked Elbow, Alberta. Apparently, the crash is the deadly result of a game of chicken between a car and a pick-up truck. Marc LePage, editor of the Crooked Elbow Sun, covers the story with his notebook and camera and, as usual, very, very drunk.
Why are the police ordered to keep reporters away from the accident? What details does Marc miss as he works to keep his inebriated balance on the dark highway?
No Blood Relative tells an intriguing and suspenseful story of murder, small town corruption, and Marc LePage's struggle to right his own life's downward, alcoholic spiral.
