Stephen Legault has proven himself to be one of the most versatile writers currently working in Canadian crime fiction. The National Post, March 28, 2013
Durrant Wallace is back. The Canadian west is changing. Calgary is now a town; the railway is nearly complete. Amid the frenzied growth of the Northwest Territories, Louis Riel has returned from exile in Montana and the Métis and Cree have taken up arms against the Dominion. In the bloodiest battle of the conflict, on the banks of the Saskatchewan River at Batoche, a man has been murdered inside the Northwest Field Force’s encampment and a Métis deserter has been arrested for the crime. But there is more to this killing than simple revenge, and Durrant Wallace must use all of his skills to determine who the real assassin is before more men’s lives are taken. The Third Riel Conspiracy is a mystery about the deception and political malfeasance that cloaked the origins of the Canadian west.
