Mystery Sid Rafferty Matt Hughes War in the Woods Vancouver Island old growth

In 1997, I had a mystery novel out from Doubleday Canada, Downshift, that was ill-fated. The editor who wanted the book had to win a five-month argument with the marketing department. Then she left to go to another publisher three months before the novel’s release. Not good. Old Growth would have been the sequel.
