About the Book    In 1755, the Halifax waterfront was rife with the evil of powerful men seeking revenge. Those men chose to act against the boy, Thomas Gray, son of William Gray, late of the governor´s staff and the ship´s company of His Majesty´s man o´war, HMS Sutherland.
   On the Indian Frontier, the Kendrick family fought well against the French and Indians during the war. During the peace, their enemies returned for their revenge.
   You might be surprised by the actions of the pirates of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, or the adventures of the masterless men of Newfoundland, because it is all here, in the third book of the Abuse of Power series, as we trace the lives of these families into the next generation.
