It is the spring of 1885 and the Northwest Rebellion has broken out. Amid the chaos of the Battle of Batoche, a grisly act leaves Reuben Wake dead. A Metis man is arrested for the crime, but he claims innocence. When Durrant Wallace, sergeant in the North West Mounted Police, begins his own investigation into the man's possible motives, he learns there were many who wanted Wake dead. What Durrant uncovers is a series of covert conspiracies surrounding Metis leader and prophet Louis Riel. And, during the week-long intermission in Riel's trial, he sets a trap to find Wake's true killer.

The Third Riel Conspiracy is the second book in the Durrant Wallace Mysteries, a series of historical murder mysteries set during pivotal events in western Canada's history.

Historical mystery novel with respect to the Riel rebellion in Batoche Saskatchewan. The narrative is a bit stilted and the plot and mystery is a bit contrived. The characterization is done well. Worth reading if you like a mystery in a Canadian Historical setting.

I loved it! The characters were interesting, the plot kept twisting & turning & the landscape & history seemed very real. It was hard to put it down to go to bed when it was late.
