Book Description
This is a collection of true Newfoundland and Labrador stories about crime and punishment on land and sea. Included here are tales of murder, mutiny, and smuggling on the high seas, as well as riots, assaults, and frauds perpetrated in some of the strangest criminal cases this province has ever seen.

About the Author:
Robert Parsons is one of Atlantic Canada's most popular writers, specializing in stories of ships and sailors. He was born on the edge of the ocean, the son of a sea cook, and sailed as a boy of eleven on a summer vacation to the then prolific Grand Banks off Newfoundland. Now, in his "laid back" days as a retired educator, Robert continues to research and write.

He has had over two hundred articles and stories published in various local and national magazines, including Newfoundland Lifestyle, Downhome Magazine, Newfoundland Quarterly, Decks Awash, Rounder, The Telegram, and the Southern Gazette, and national publications Legion Magazine and Reader's Digest. Robert's twenty or so books of marine misadventure have been widely read throughout Newfoundland and Labrador and on the Canadian mainland.

In May 2009, Robert's non-fiction prose was judged an award winner in the annual Arts and Letters Competition.
