The short stories collected in this album are six: they are framed inside the Pleasant Point trading post, with the excitement created by its motley crew of characters. We will tell the tale of an impossible murder that happened in a “closed room”, a mysterious out of season snowfall, a nun in Darkwood, a female community, a man-hunt on an iced river, and an improbable escape on a riverboat...
