Softcover. In the summer of 1913, a prominent Sydney hotelier and racehorse owner, originally from New Brunswick, Ben Atkinson, was found dead on a wooded road near Sydney, Nova Scotia. First thought to be an accident, but later murder, a visiting American, Frank Haynes, was hanged for the crime. Many questions were never resolved. Was the death the work of only one? Was the crime committed by a hit man? Was a romantic affair behind the death? Were all the guilty punished? The turmoil of the trial tore at the city and left reputations in tatters. With Bibliog. 104pp. trade size softcover. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F.
