Who struck the match? As World War Two comes to an end, Depot Harbour, Ontario, once a busy deep-water port on Georgian Bay, is on its way to becoming a ghost town. The old wooden grain elevators and... More > warehouses sleep in the warm summer weather. But soon after dusk on August 14, 1945, the day the war is finally over, the grain elevators erupt into flames. Few people know that across a narrow strip of water one of the warehouses contains hundreds of tons of cordite, an explosive intended for the war. Fanned by the wind, the fire jumps the harbour. Is the fire the result of spontaneous combustion? Unlikely. Hal Watson, a middle-aged teacher at a nearby school, knows the secret behind the inferno and explosion. Parry Sound, the inlet where Depot Harbour used to stand, is now a cottagers' paradise, but when Hal first sees the place he calls it 'the edge of the world.' His account of the year leading up to the conflagration involves love and murder. Join him and learn who struck that match.< Less
