Will Minty St. James be found? What’s the connection between the sexed-up senior and the spud-stuffed corpse? Will Rory McDougall recapture his former glory as snowboarding’s Red-Headed Wonder? And will Janna St. James’ one-woman ski jump protest give the Mayoral race its defining issue? For the answers to these questions and many more, come back next week to see inside Murder in the Great Big Playground .

This is the fourth year for the Whistler Collective Novel Experiment, a literary collaboration of local writers put on by the Whistler Writers Group, The Vicious Circle. Each week the latest chapter will be published in Pique Newsmagazine, and posted online with the other chapters at www.piquenewsmagazine.com/collectivenovel/.

Cindy Filipenko is currently up to her eyeballs in animation scriptwriting. She dreams of one day penning an Oprah's Book Club selection.
