NATIONAL BESTSELLER
A GLOBE AND MAIL BESTSELLER

 
“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
