When gold is found in the mountains of Canada, it brings a rush of prospectors, pilots, and men looking to get rich quick. It also brings a slew of dead bodies. That is when Reid Bennett, the lone cop of tiny Murphy's Harbour, gets called in to help. The dead body of geologist Jim Prudhomme is found mauled beyond recognition by a bear. Or is it? Bear attacks are more than rare in these parts, and the tracks do not add up. Is it murder instead?

Police Chief Reid Bennett has always filled his days crimping the plans of criminals, sweating it out knowing danger and intrigue are what fuels his passions. But this time Reid is taking some time off. With his new wife Freda and Sam, his always-present German Shepherd, Reid is heading north through the Canadian wilderness on his honeymoon. Unable to just let his job go completely, Reid unwisely takes an assignment on his way north to investigate police corruption in the dour mining town of Elliot. Apparently Reid has more experience with police corruption than with marriage and lets his honeymoon slide into an ever-widening abyss of rural politics and small town backstabbing. Maybe it's all for the best because Elliot is no place for a honeymoon. A classic dying western outpost complete with chronic bar fights and instant justice, Elliot revolves around cops taking kickbacks from hotel managers who, in turn, are making a fortune from roving prostitutes serving the local miners every payday. When one hotel manager turns up murdered, the cauldron seems ready to boil over. With the only man willing to talk dead, Reid and Sam go undercover mining the depths of deception in order to bring down the house. Every institution stands to be overturned and Freda learns that marriage may be one of them. Can she make a life out of watching her new husband thrown willingly into harm's way? Can Reid and Sam get out of trouble?"A series character worth watching for ... fast moving, intriguing."--Los Angeles Times"Danger, full-bodied characters, and enough detail about police work and survival techniques to complement Bennett's role as the most savvy cop currently in the genre."--Library Journal

Mr. Scrooge : a musical comedy in two acts by Richard Morris( Book )

3 editions published between 1963 and 1972 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A lilting Christmas show based on Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol. The added dimensions of musical treatment make this a particularly enjoyable new way of presenting this grand story of hardhearted Ebenezer Scrooge, who hates Christmas and is visited successively by three ghosts: the ghost of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future. They bring revelations to Scrooge, mainly about himself, and he's shocked into action that centers about the poor but happy Cratchit family and their brave little crippled son Tiny Tim. The songs are varied and catchy. (from publisher's website)
