Description

This is the story of the notorious, unsolved murder of the richest baronet in the British Empire, Sir Harry Oakes. The millionaire miner made his fortune from the rich mines in Northern Ontario. His wealth and lifestyle gave many a motive for murder. Rumours surrounding the murder case as well as prime details about the three suspects (including his close friend and business associate, and the son-in-law who eloped with his daughter), dirt on the mishandled investigation and events during the trial will keep you on the edge of your seat.
