For anyone other than Randy Craig, a contract to do archival research and web development for Alberta's famed Rutherford House should have been a quiet gig. But when she discovers an unsolved mystery linked to Rutherford House in the Alberta Archives and the bodies begin to pile up, Randy can't help but wonder if her modern-day troubles are linked to the intrigues of the past.

Janice MacDonald is the author of nine books, including novels, non-fiction titles, and a children?s book. Janice?s stories and essays have been widely anthologized, and her popular Randy Craig novels were the first mystery series set in Edmonton. She has taught English literature, communications and creative writing at both the University of Alberta and Grant MacEwan College and is currently the organizational storyteller for the Province of Alberta. She lives and writes in Edmonton

Janice MacDonald should be given an award by Alberta Tourism for putting the province on the mystery map. Condemned to Repeat is a compelling tale of secrets from the past colliding with the present, along with a heavy dose of history and travelogue. Plus a murder or two. Not to be missed!

I always enjoy novels with a strong sense of place. In Janice MacDonald's work that place is Edmonton.


Does for historic sites what she did for music festivals: strews corpses and intrigues in trademark MacDonald style, with giggles and gusto.

MacDonald?s prose drips local history from every j, y, p and q that dangle below the baseline. Edmontonians in particular will enjoy following the genial Randy Craig through buildings and districts that are as familiar to them as their neighbours, and yet now imprinted with murder and mystery.

Condemned to Repeat is more than a murder mystery. It immersed me in the local landscape of Edmonton, with its physical, social and political character, both past and present. More importantly, I learned new things about my own city and its surroundings. In most mysteries the purpose for reading ends with the capture of the murderer. With Condemned to Repeat, we gladly go back to savour the many stories within this story.

[Condmned to Repeat] is a riveting tale that will appeal to a wide spectrum of readers. - Mystery Maven Canada
