It hasn’t been Martine LeDuc’s best day. Or best season, for that matter. She’s Montreal’s PR director, and four women have been murdered. That doesn’t exactly make for the most enticing advertising campaign ever.
(I remind myself of her situation when I’m in the midst of a Very Bad Day. It’s always helpful to try and keep perspective on your life, and seriously—having to account professionally for bodies showing up has got to be worse than anything that happens to me!)
Then the city’s mayor asks Martine to liaise with the police department to find out what’s going on, and she finds that she’s actually pretty good at looking below the surface of things. She manages not to get killed just by the skin of her teeth—and just in time for her almost-adolescent stepchildren to take turns getting under her skin.
Like I said: someone else’s Really Truly Horribly Bad Day can give you a great sense of perspective on yours!
