Murder, mysteries and advocacy make strange bedfellows.
Edmonton author Emma Pivato has made it her goal to combine her love of mystery novels with a lifelong passion of advocating for individuals with disabilities. Her protagonist, Claire Burke, calls Edmonton home and locations within the city play host to benign backdrops and dangerous locales.
