Lake On The Mountain: A Dan Sharp Mystery Book
Dundurn Books
ISBN 9781459700017

Dan Sharp, a gay father and missing persons investigator, accepts an invitation to a wedding on a yacht in Ontario's Prince Edward County. It seems just the thing to bring Dan closer to his noncommittal partner, Bill, a respected medical professional with a penchant for sleazy after-hours clubs, cheap drugs, and rough sex. But the event doesn't go exactly as planned.

When a member of the wedding party is swept overboard, a case of mistaken identity leads to confusion as the wrong person is reported missing. The hunt for a possible killer leads Dan deeper into the troubled waters and private lives of a family of rich WASPs and their secret world of privilege.

No sooner is that case resolved when a second one ends up on Dan's desk. Dan is hired by an anonymous source to investigate the disappearance 20 years earlier of the groom’s father. The only clues are a missing bicycle and six horses mysteriously poisoned.

Here's what the world is saying about Lake On The Mountain

"Skillfully told…Round draws readers deep into Dan's physical and psychological worlds, balancing his protagonist's faults with his gifts as an investigator and father."
Publisher's Weekly


"Lake On The Mountain exposes the veneer of entitlement generated by the belief that wealth powers all. The writing is raw, the emotions are taut and author Jeffrey Round brings it together in a breathtaking conclusion."
Don Graves, The Hamilton Spectator


"Round is at the top of his game. The pace of this tale of love, loss, and betrayal never flags…a splendid read."
Gail Bowen, author of the Joanne Kilbourn series
