Notes: In the summer of 1896, an old schooner sailed from Boston to Argentina with twelve people on board. A few days into the journey, the captain, his wife, and the second mate were all murdered with an axe. And no one on board saw it happen.

The surviving crew members were a rogue's gallery of gruff, seafaring brutes, each offering the weary cold-case investigator multiple names, wild accusations, and fast-changing testimony.

And so begins another in-depth crime investigation by the author, as he travels the tough streets of Halifax to the courtrooms of Boston in search of a killer. Along the way, he explores the world of 1896 and discovers that nothing in this case is what it first seems. In turns fascinating, frightening, and funny, "The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" is an intriguing true tale of murder, mystery, and madness.
