Description

Blood brothers Jacob and Eli could become sworn enemies when Eli joins the American invasion of Canada.

After avoiding the gallows and fleeing to the United States, Eli returns to Newark when the American Army attacks Fort George. If he is captured again, he will hang, but his return exposes Jacob to possible charges of treason as well-for helping Eli escape. Two people learn their secret: their two enemies, William and Henry. Eli has scores to settle with them. Can he silence them forever -with pistols at dawn?

Set in the battles of Stoney Creek and Beaver Dams -a period when Canada came closest to losing the War of 1812.
