About this product
- DescriptionIn his uniquely homespun style, sinister storyteller Steve Vern digs up the dirt on Maritime murders from 1770 to 1929--along with a few bodies along the way. Unearthing historically buried, and occasionally unsolved, violent crimes from across Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, Vern s versions of these 19 macabre tales will chill you to the bone. Featuring a bevy of questionable characters from the darkest recesses of Maritime history, Maritime Murder divulges a diverse array of bygone crimes, trials, and the eerie aftermath. From botched executions and poisous tea, to axe murders and curious cover-ups, bear witness to the villains and victims of some of the dastardliest deeds this side of the Atlantic.
- Author BiographySteve Vernon learned the storytelling tradition from his grandfather. As part of the Writers in the Schools program he now teaches this tradition to Nova Scotia children in schools across the province. His books include The Lunenburg Werewolf, the children s picture book Maritime Monsters, and the YA novel Sinking Deeper. Steve has lived in Nova Scotia for nearly forty years.

I couldn't put it down. Well researched but easy to read. I stayed up all night reading it. It also improved my geography.
