About the Author: Anthony Bidulka

In 1999 Anthony Bidulka, BA, BEd, BComm, CPA left a decade long professional accounting career to pursue writing and never looked back.

In 2003, Quill & Quire described Bidulka’s first book, Amuse Bouche: A Russell Quant Mystery, as “…an effervescent first novel that is much like the tasty French hors d’oeuvres from which it takes its name”, earning Bidulka a nomination for the Crime Writers of Canada Arthur Ellis Award.

Bidulka wrote two books following the adventures of man of action Adam Saint, a tough-as-nails, luxury loving, Disaster Recovery Agent. In 2016 Bidulka published his first stand-alone suspense novel, Set Free, with Kirkus Reviews saying: “The countless plot twists are exhilarating, with gasp-inducing drama and flatly startling story turns.”

Bidulka’s books have been nominated for Crime Writers of Canada Arthur Ellis Awards, Saskatchewan Book Awards, a ReLit award, Lambda Literary Awards, with Flight of Aquavit awarded the Lambda Literary Award for Best Men’s Mystery, making Bidulka the first Canadian to win in that category.

Anthony has toured extensively in both Canada and the United States. A great believer in community involvement, he has been on the boards of local, national and international organizations. He was recently inducted to his local university’s Wall of Honour and named his city’s Citizen of the Year.

When he isn’t writing, Bidulka loves to travel the world, collect art, walk his dogs and throw a good party.

Charity Wiser, matriarch of the Wiser clan by virtue of her wealth and power, is an indomitable provocateur...and private detective Russell Quant's newest employer. There is more than a single rotten apple on the Wiser family tree, and Quant has been hired to discover which one is intent on murdering his client. To help him sleuth out the evil culprit, Charity Wiser arranges a family reunion aboard the opulent Friends of Dorothy cruise liner as it tours the most exotic ports of the Mediterranean. But smooth sailing is short-lived as undercurrents of clashes-local and tourist, gay and straight, trendy and traditional-offer Russell insight into the Wisers and reveal a family simmering with rage and greed. He begins to wonder: who doesn't want Charity Wiser dead? Shifting from his prairie stomping ground to a sea undulating with death, Quant's smarts, senses and sea legs are challenged. From tantalizing tapas and sweet sangria in Spain to the bitter taste of death in Sicily, Quant goes head to head with friends and foes in a series of unforgettable locales. Come aboard a sensual journey of sun and sea brine, caviar and champagne on a cruise replete with the luxury of murder.
