Delusion: The True Story of Victorian Superspy Henri Le Caron by Peter Edwards
As the Dominion of Canada was still a part of the British Empire in 1866, it was a target for Irish rebels living in the United States seeking Ireland’s liberation from British occupation. Using numerous aliases, British secret operative Henri Le Caron (1841-1894) risked everything - career, family, and even his life - for Queen and country. This exciting story, based on extensive research and featuring historical photographs, profiles the early history of Canadian, British, and American intelligence gathering and one man’s surprising place in it.
