Please join Wayne Arthurson as he launches The Traitors of Camp 133 at Owl's Nest Books in Calgary on November 9, 2016. E.C. Bell (The Marie Jenner Mysteries) and T.K. Boomer (Planet Song) join Wayne for an evening of Edmonton writers in Calgary's fair city.
Captain Mueller is dead. Hanged, apparently, by his own hand. But ex-police officer and war hero Sergeant August Neumann doesn’t think it’s quite so simple. How could it be with blackshirts, legionnaires, and communist sympathisers vying for control of the camp?
Now Sergeant Neumann must navigate these treacherous cliques to find the truth while under the watchful eyes of his Canadian captors.
Wayne Arthurson manages to hook you on the first page of this masterful mystery. The Traitors of Camp 133 is historical fiction at its best, a wonderful achievement, and a thoroughly entertaining read.
—David Swinson, author of The Second Girl
The Traitors of Camp 133 is a murder mystery that delivers. Wayne Arthurson wraps his mystery in a fascinating subculture: German POWs in a Southern Alberta camp shortly after the Allies invade Normandy. It’s a great read.
—Todd Babiak, author of Come Barbarians and Son of France
The joy of this book is in the meticulously researched details; watching the way Arthurson’s August Neumann navigates the peculiar society within the barbed wire (and without) is fascinating stuff, and the solid, satisfying mystery is the cherry on top.
—Owen Laukkanen, author of The Watcher in the Wall
