Praise

NATIONAL BESTSELLER
A Globe and Mail Best Book
 
“Roy MacGregor, one of Canada’s top authors, unravels much of what is arguably the greatest Canadian mystery of all time in his latest book. . . . MacGregor has woven a convincing story.” 
 — Toronto Star
 
“Part history, part true-crime investigation and part memoir, Northern Light is both scrupulously even-handed and deeply personal. . . . [MacGregor] has crafted a beautifully realized picture of a time and place.”
 — Winnipeg Free Press
 
“It would be a shame to give too much detail from Northern Light because it is an intriguing, well-crafted piece of work blessed with all the natural elements of a great story: Fame, murder, lost love, shame, money, government deception and a drama played out against one of our country’s most magnificent natural backdrops. What more could a reader ask for?”
 — Ottawa Citizen
 
“What happened to painter Tom Thomson is the greatest Canadian story never fully told. But now, thanks to Roy MacGregor, it has been.”
 — David M. Shribman, The Globe and Mail (Best Book)
 
“The author does a masterful job of navigating through this thicket of possibilities, and comes to a conclusion that seems virtually unassailable.”
 — Maclean’s
