Crime Wave: Con Men, Rogues and Scoundrels from Nova Scotia’s Past
Meet Samuel Herbert Dougal, a lady-killer if there ever was one. Say hello to Henry More Smith, an escape artist who could upstage Harry Houdini. And get to know Chicago lawyer Leo Koretz. He’d love to sell you shares in his bogus Panamanian oil syndicate. These are just three of the shady characters who take centre stage in Crime Wave, a rogues’ gallery of pirates, swindlers, bank robbers and murderers who plied their trade in Nova Scotia (Pottersfield Press, 1991).
Short-listed by the Crime Writers of Canada for the Arthur Ellis Award, for best Canadian true-crime book, and a finalist for the City of Dartmouth Book Award.
