The Murder of A MountieBook - 1997
Beyond Reason is Robert Knuckle's third book in the genre of true crime. Once again, he combines a meticulous eye for research with a storyteller's touch to recreate an intriguing real-life drama based on what many consider to the the most interesting story in all the files of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.A desperate, lawless couple, once referred to as Canada's Bonnie and Clyde, are hiding inside a motel room. A wild-west gunfight ensues where one Mountie is killed and two others badly wounded. The only RCMP to escape shoots the female fugitive in the back as the couple flees the scene in a police cruiser.This leads to an extended trail of mayhem and hostage-taking that runs through several farms on the back roads of south western Manitoba and, in turn, ignites one of the biggest manhunts in the history of the province.
