The Bishop's Pawn
Lurid gossip trails Dick Dougherty in his flight from New York to Toronto in 1838. But calumny mixes with politics, and a fiery sermon by Bishop John Strachan incites his murder. Dick is found dead with a note on his back bearing one word “Sodomite.” Marc Edwards, Dick’s dear friend, travels to New York to investigate. Even he is shocked by the depravity he uncovers.
