In the first novel in the Barkerville Mystery series, protagonist Ted MacIntosh tries to unravel a suspicious murder with possible fatal consequences.

lt’s summer in 1866 in the Cariboo gold fields, and a man has disappeared. Young Ted learns from the local barber, Moses, that his friend Charles, who was travelling to the gold fields, has failed to arrive. And a forbidding stranger named James Barry has arrived in town wearing a gold nugget pin that belonged to the missing man. What could have happened to him? Was James Barry responsible for his disappearance? Moses and Ted are suspicious – but they’re also afraid for their own safety. Slowly, with several adventures and close calls, they unravel the story of a cruel murder. But have they identified the right criminal?

Shortlisted for the Geoffrey Bilson Award for Historical Fiction, based on true events, and set against the exciting backdrop of the Gold Rush era, Moses, Me, and Murder offers a captivating tale of betrayal, thievery, and redemption.

Ann Walsh has published several books for young people, including By the Skin of His Teeth and The Doctor's Apprentice, which was shortlisted for a B.C. Book Prize and the Geoffrey Bilson Award. Her novel Shabash! was shortlisted for the Silver Birch Award. She lives in Williams Lake, British Columbia.

"...teachers will find this well-researched resource to be a useful addition in their BC history lessons. As for young people, Moses, Me and Murder is an enjoyable and quick read that will transport the reader back to the early days of British Columbia." - Canadian Materials

Walsh manages through her careful research to weave real events into a suspenseful novel. - Resource Links

I recommend this book to ten to thirteen year olds who like mysteries and who are interested in BC history. (Review by Nora, age 12, grade 7) - Canadian Teacher Magazine
