Hardback. There are two sides to the Mounted Police; this is the second. Of the dramatic side, rightly famous for its sweep and audacity and colour, much was made. But the other side - work performed chiefly out of uniform and against less spectacular if no less dangerous hazards, was not well known. Yet this was the work which solidified the Force's reputation and prolonged its usefulness. The authors recount a few cases which reflected this other side of the shield. Each relates, from the records, an outstanding problem presented by some criminal or gang of criminals to the men of the Force, and shows how it was solved. The first volume of true detective stories ever selected from the archives of the Mounted Police. Chapter headings include : The O'Brien Murders; Five Men in a Boat; Pretty Wolverine's Fifth Husband; The One-Eyed Partnership; The Case of Ernest Cashel; The Unquestioned Alibi; A Serial Solution; A Piece of String; The Affair at Isle Ste. Therese; A Contest in Ingenuity; A Sucker Creek Sherlock; The Spanish Consul Case; Murder at Belly Butte; Rounding Out The Saga. Illus. by Bert Caldwell and E.J. Dinsmore. 300pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. V. lightly browned pp., tiny mks. to covers o/w Vg+
