Dubious Allegiance

 

Autumn 1837, Lieutenant Marc Edwards is sent with his British regiment to subdue increasingly hostile French rebels in what later became Quebec. The brutality causes Marc to question whether the sacrifices he has made for the British Crown have been worth the cost.

On his return to Toronto, Marc is accompanied by a group of seemingly innocent civilians.  It becomes clear that some fellow travellers are not who they claim and Marc is the target of an unknown assassin. When a member of the group is found murdered, Marc realizes that he may have more than one killer to worry about.
