"In McGahan's account, the 'world we have lost' in the Maritimes was not a peaceful world. There were preachers who were also bigamists; policemen who were motivated by revenge; ordinary citizens who suddenly engaged in 'unnatural' acts. [This volume] demonstrates that where crime is concerned, the boundaries are not set by geography but by the unpredictable impulses of men and women." - from the rear cover.
