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 many aliases, Henri Le Caron turned from restless adventurer to cloak-and-dagger operative risking everything-his career, his family, and his life-for Queen and country. In Delusion: The True Story of Victorian Superspy Henri Le Caron , journalist Peter Edwards reveals the early history of Canadian, British, and American intelligence gathering. Weaving the story of intrigue with Le Caron''s further exploits as a grave robber, Edwards shows that what is called "freedom fighting" by some and "terrorism" by others is as old as the hills. Individuals and motivations clash in this story of nationhood at the crossroads.
