  • Short Description

Transit security officer Casey Holland’s latest assignment—to monitor a group of teens who hop the M5 bus after shoplifting sprees—spirals out of control when the kids attack her and her colleagues. Compounding Casey’s stress are the manipulative boy her thirteen-year-old ward, Summer, is dating, and the intense volunteer work she’s doing at Fraserview Youth Custody Center. Casey is shocked to find a friend’s grandson, Justin, inside. Shock turns to horror when the facility’s director suffers a fatal heart attack in front of her. A second death and rumours of illegal activity at Fraserview make Casey wonder whether Justin is part of the problem or a potential victim. As Casey deals with troubled teens on all fronts, the escalating violence could change her and Summer’s lives forever. Who will live and who will die?

The Deep End is the fourth installment in the Casey Holland transit mystery series.

"The fourth Casey Holland Mystery ... is an enjoyable tale starring a caring, nice (perhaps too nice) heroine who suffers bumps and bruises while working two violent cases. Harder for Casey than the assault on her body is the "attack" on her mind by her ward. Readers will dive into The Deep End even with no water in the pool." —Harriet Klausner, #1 Hall of Fame Amazon Reviewer

"Casey is a very interesting protag … and I found the tale very absorbing. Recommended." —Gloria Feit, Amazon reviewer
