Overview

Official corruption, labor unrest, crime in the streets, waves of immigration, the chasm between rich and poor: these are issues that surface throughout American history-and still resonate today. Canalside Tale, an intense new novel set in the year 1880, brings to life the human drama behind these issues.
Detective Danny "Brick Fist" Doyle polices one of most crime-ridden precincts in the world, the notorious Canal District of Buffalo. Despite a fearsome, and oftentimes wayward reputation, he is viewed as a useful tool by the department. However, when investigating a society murder and industrial disaster, he resists a rush to judgment as demanded by his superiors. Instead, he embarks upon a redemptive quest for the truth that leads him into conflicts with crime lords, corrupt officials and a bigoted tycoon.
Set against the backdrop of powerful elites and struggling masses, Canalside Tale takes the reader on an exciting journey through Irish Hoolies, Victorian mansions, forbidden affairs, pestilent sweatshops, elegant receptions, clandestine union meetings and torch-lit political rallies. After winding through a world of colorful and unforgettable characters, the story leads to a surprising yet stirring conclusion.
