Colonel By built the Rideau Canal to defend against an American invasion. He couldn't have imagined the carnage that twenty of Canada's best mystery writers would wreak along this peaceful waterway two centuries later. In Kingston, a young lawyer named John A. Macdonald investigates the death of a wealthy landlord. At Jones Falls, a lockmaster finds a nasty use for a sluice. And there seems to be a corpse for each of the eight locks at Ottawa. Stories range from dark tales of redemption to comic romps, from historical to modern day, and there's even a ghost or two for good measure.
