Wanting Aidan
by Alyssa Hall

From the author of Trusting Claire comes a compelling new mystery set in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. When Joe Parrott, a somewhat disillusioned private investigator, discovers the body of a woman near his home, he is determined to do her justice and find the killer. Haunted by her image, he begins his quest for answers. Joe learns that the deceased, Rita, was a runaway from an abusive home. Not only that, but at a young age, she endured a tragic life-changing experience. With the help of an unexpected ally and his friends in the Sheffield Police, Joe begins to unravel the mystery of this young woman, uncovering a shattering revelation that will reverberate through those connected to Rita—and impact his own life as well. Wanting Aidan is a captivating crime drama that will leave readers wondering about how we each choose the paths we take.

Alyssa Hall is a true storyteller. She writes from the heart and about places and themes she knows well. She has a knack for effortlessly infusing a vivid sense of place in her stories. Wanting Aidan, her second mystery novel, grew out of Alyssa’s love of England, her passion for detective stories, as well as her compassion for people like Rita and Stefan. She is also the author of Trusting Claire (FriesenPress, December 2020). Alyssa cleverly weaves characters from her first book into this second. While still a new and relatively unknown writer, she is on her way to becoming a known and credible novelist. Alyssa was born and raised in Newmarket, Ontario, but she now lives in Langley, British Columbia, with her husband, David.
