(From the publisher):
WHAT IF AMERICA HAD NEVER LEFT THE BRITISH EMPIRE?
The Two Geoges is an outstanding 'what-if' novel set in an alternate 20th Century in which the American Revolution of 1776 and the subsequent War of Independence never took place. As a result, what in our world became the USA never left the British Empire, remaining instead in the Imperial fold as Britain's most treasured overseas territory, the North American Union.
But beneath the peaceful surface of life in the NAU - the fastest mode of civil travel is the airship and in the cities death by shooting is virtually unknown - a sinister consiricay seethes. And Colonel Thomas Bushell of the Royal American Mounted Police has to race against time to try and foil the deadly plot to strike at the very heart of the British Empire...
