About the Book The War of 1812

When a disastrous campaign against Napoleon´s French troops leaves him facing a court-martial, British Colonel John Hawkins accepts a posting in "The Canadas" to give his career, and his life, a fresh start.

Now stationed at Fort George, John finds himself in a frontier consumed by war. He also, unexpectedly, finds friendship; and love; and murder!

After the Battle of Queenston Heights John must survive the Battle at Stoney Creek, evade pursuit from a treacherous band of renegade soldiers, and race against time to rescue his love from the raging inferno of the town of Newark (modern-day Niagara-on-the-Lake) as it is destroyed by flames!
