Constable Jack Merrick is on the hunt for answers to the question of who murdered local man, Henri Leclerc. The murder weapon is a strange puzzle, but is it also a clue to who took this man’s life?

Dark Horse is the second in this series of historical mystery novels. If you like mysteries with a strong female lead, that put you on the edge of your seat, and focus on the relationships as much as the plot, then you’ll love Alexandra Amor’s heartfelt examination of life in frontier British Columbia. Fans of Murdoch Mysteries and Phryne Fisher mysteries will love this series.
