Description

Montreal actor Agathe O’Reilly is the recipient of anonymous letters that have become increasingly threatening and worrisome, with their references to betrayal, punishment, and revenge. Have they to do with the traumatic events that marked her childhood in western Quebec, events she has kept secret until now?

 

When threats turn to violence and a first victimis claimed, Agathe is at a loss as to where she should turn: To her loyal but meddling best friend? To her possessive lover, a married man and a star on Quebec’s theatre scene? To a helpful neighbour who harbours some secrets of his own? To the police? Or to her family, with whom she has had no contact for years? Just how far will the letter-writer go to exact revenge?

The Third Letter, by two time Governor General’s Award-winning writer Michèle Marineau, is a love story wrapped in a mystery novel, brimming with suspense and soul.
