Kellough does a fine job of bringing life to the times and to her ministerial hero on horseback.

On the Head of a Pin captivated us from the beginning. Janet did a great job of weaving her characters into a mystery that keeps you turning the pages ... This is a four star selection, that will be loved by all mystery fans.

Kellough's book works on several levels; the murder mystery is woven into the larger story of Canada's wild, pre-Confederation era.
