Death at the falls / Rosemary Simpson.


When daredevil Crazy Louie Whiting sends a test barrel over Niagara Falls in 1890, Prudence and Geoffrey investigate after the body of a local Tuscarora Indian is discovered inside, believing there may be a link to their client, an heiress due to inherit land that could be worth millions.
October 1890. Prudence and Geoffrey settle into the most elegant hotel in Canadian Niagara, they observe a popular tourist area torn between natural beauty and industrial power. They also notice the antics of daredevil Crazy Louie Whiting, determined to be the first person to navigate the falls without drowning. When Crazy Louie sends a specially designed test barrel containing a sheep over the falls, the barrel is retrieved and the battered body of a local Tuscarora Indian spills out. The dead man had suspicions about rampant bribery among greedy land developers and local officials. Is there a connection to their client, Rowan Adderly, who is due to inherit land that could be worth million? -- adapted from jacket
