Mysteries and crime stories, Women sleuths, Canadian authors (Fiction)
Is the fourth time a charm for October Schwartz and her ghost detective friends? While investigating the cause of Tabetha Scott's 1860s death, October and the dead kids discover that Sticksville, Ontario, served as an endpoint for the Underground Railroad,… the secret network that helped enslaved people escape to free states and Canada. Fraudulent occult psychics, funeral home ambushes, band wars, the spooky Sticksville fairgrounds, and a history of prejudice all converge in a climactic conclusion that hints a secret society might be behind all manner of catastrophes in October's not-so-boring little town. For junior and senior high readers. Sequel to "Loyalist to a fault". 2018.
