Yesterday's post reminded me of another spot I thought of to stage a murder in a future book. This is the pedestrian space beneath Plaza Bridge downtown; the Rideau Canal is off to the left, and the National Arts Centre is off at the far end. The War Memorial is up the stairs to the right; these days there's an hourly change in the guard; the new shift of troops goes up those stairs to the Memorial. I enjoy walking through this space in daytime or nighttime, and thought about setting the scene in question here... but there will no doubt be many surveillance cameras here as well. Instead I ended up deciding that a spot across the river up in the Gatineau Hills would do well. By the way, if you want to read the scene, click here. It might be a bit different when I get around to writing that book, but that's where it starts.
To my Canadian followers: Happy Thanksgiving!
