Prequel to City of ice and Ice Lake.
"Set in Montreal, this is a prequel to the bestselling Cinq-Mars crime novels. On the night of the "Rocket Richard Riot" in 1955, the legendary Cartier Dagger is stolen from its protective glass in the Sun Life building. The dagger once belonged to the explorer Jacques Cartier. The same night, a man is found murdered with a dagger wound to his heart. Thirteen years later, Émile Cing-Mars is asked to continue the investigation. In the style of The Red Violin, the book follows the fate of an artefact over time - from the age of Cartier to the the Trudeau era."--Publisher.
