Greed, madness, revenge and political doctrine are but a few of the motives behind eight dramatic prairie murder cases related by author Peter Smith. A Saskatchewan farmhouse is burned to the ground to conceal the brutal murders of a family of seven; a German prisoner-of-war camp in Medicine Hat is the scene of savage Nazi killings, and three desperados from Manitoba flee across the prairies and finally engage in a deadly shootout with Mounties near Banff. These are just some of the true tales that explore the dark side of 20th-century prairie history.
