I could not put Agnes, Murderess down. Gothic horror meets feminist history in this deceptively spare novel of a 19th-century waif turned serial killer. Along the way, the characters and readers alike are haunted by considerations of power stolen away and seized back, colonialism, loneliness, desire, obsession, friendship, and even love.” — Annabel Lyon

FESTIVAL BOOK

Agnes, Murderess

In the Cariboo region of B.C., there are whispers of Agnes McVee, a 19th-century roadhouse owner, madam, and serial killer; a tortured, complicated woman struggling to escape her past. <em>Agnes, Murderess</em> is a graphic novel that imagines her story. It is a spine-chilling tale of ghosts and murder, friendship and betrayal, love and greed, fate and choice.
