On the next night, Lieutenant Colonel Wellesley, the man in charge of arranging transport for the war-weary soldiers, is shot in the head. is it coincidence, or it there some darker conspiracy? Outraged at the chaos created by these 'wild' Canadians, Churchill sends in Scotland Yard to uncover the truth. As evidence of black-market dealings, abduction, and 'accidental' death stretches through Europe and across the sea to Canada, investigators race to solve the mystery before the death toll climbs any higher. Bruce Allen Powe draws on his own experience in World War II to craft a must-read for history enthusiasts and mystery lovers alike.
