More Description

"Upper Canada is in political upheaval, and a government spy" "is dead
It is January 1836 and Lieutenant-Governor John Colborne has a problem he needs solved discreetly. Joshua Smallman, the man he sent to spy on the growing support for William Lyon Mackenzie among angry farmers in the Cobourg area, is dead. Did he walk accidentally into an old Indian trap, or was he murdered? Colborne wants to know.
The man he sends to find out is Ensign Marc Edwards, newly arrived in Upper Canada, who innocently rides into an area seething with discontent. Any one of the many local radicals would have reason to eliminate a government spy. Marc soon finds himself personally embroiled in the political issues surrounding Smallman's death.
Seduced by one farmer's wife, bawled at by another, and entranced by a third, Marc elicits as strong a reaction from the women he meets as from the men. And everyone appears to have something to hide, from a keg of smuggled rum in the barn to secret nighttime meetings. When Mackenzie speaks at a rally in Cobourg, political tensions explode and Marc's loyalty to the Crown is put to the test.
Fast-paced, eye-opening, gripping, "Turncoat" is the impressive debut novel of the Marc Edwards mystery series; a series that may prove addictive.
