About this book

The third book in Roy Innes' mystery series sends RCMP Inspector Coswell and the newly promoted Sergeant Blakemore to the district of West Cariboo, British Columbia. Here the murder of a neophyte Mountie, the son of a local rancher, threatens to ignite racial conflicts that have been simmering in the region ever since 1885, when five First Nations men were hanged for treason. Joined by an ambitious young Tribal Police intern, Cowswell and Blakemore's investigation takes them from cattle ranchers and native reserves to forests high in the hills where logging operations and marijuana crops exist side by side.


"In a stirring climax comprised of white versus red, youth against elder, and tribal tradition against Canadian law, the grandeur of British Columbia's deep forests emerges as the lead character in this fascinating book."

~ Betty Webb, from Mystery Scene #119

"[Innes'] story-telling prowess, captivating story line, and intriguing plot leave the reader at his mercy."
