Maritime Murder: Deadly Crimes from the Buried Past by Steve Vernon


The author of Where the Ghosts Are: A Guide to Nova Scotia’s Spookiest Places details infamous, historic murders from Canada’s Maritime provinces.

In his uniquely homespun style, sinister storyteller Steve Vernon 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, Vernon’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 poisonous 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.

Praise for Steve Vernon
