Merchant William Bowie, who issued the challenge to this duel, lay dead. Richard John Uniacke Jr., the son of Nova Scotia’s attorney general, stood trial for his murder but escaped the noose – and ended his career as a Supreme Court judge.

The Uniacke-Bowie duel is one of seven murder cases recreated in Shades of Justice, which breathes life into the law and the people caught in its web. From the disgraced mayor charged with killing his best friend to the last man hanged for murder in Nova Scotia, this book examines how race, religion, and social status have tipped the scales of justice.
