    1. How this could possibly be rated as high as it is, is the real mystery here.I like to support Canadian writers if at all possible, but this is not one that deserves it at all. I sure hope he taught better than he writes - in this series anyway. I haven't read anything else of his.The mystery plot itself is OK, and might rate a 3 if anything else was any good, but nothing else was.The writing is boring and pedestrian, the "voice" is all wrong for Victorian times, and the characters and setting ar [...]


    2. Finished reading this book yesterday (July 9, 2017). It was an interesting book to read providing some historical perspective of Upper Canada and the Cobourg area in the mid-1800's. This is the author's first book in a series that highlights Ensign Marc Edwards of His Majesty's 24th Regiment of Foot and the solving of fictional mysteries that touch on real-life individuals and their roles in Canadian history - - this book introduced the reader to the rebel, William Lyon Mackenzie.



    3. Turncoat by Don Gutteridge was a book I picked up because of my love for Canadian historical fiction. Some historical inaccuracies are to be expected in favour of drama and story. However, the book did not fail in making me feel like I was in the right time period. I very much liked the main character Ensign Marc Edwards. Readers who want a strong hero with lots of character won't really find that with Edwards. He can actually be rather dull. He certainly doesn't leave the reader wanting to know [...]


    4. WinWe meet Ensign Marc Edwards of the His Majesty’s 24th Regiment of Foot in 1836 who is assigned to newly named Toronto formerly called York in Upper Canada. It appears to be quiet and of little adventure. But he is assigned to investigate a possible murder in a small town of a Crown agent.He soon realizes that the people are in arms over British Rule as their unrest among the people from radicals, Reformers, Yankees and smugglers. Everyone seems to have a hidden agenda and no one can be trus [...]


    5. An interesting tale of life in Upper Canada around the time of the rebellion of 1837. Trouble is brewing in both Upper and Lower Canada over governments that are ignoring the will of the elected representatives to line their own pockets. A Tory informant is dead and his contact in Toronto suspects murder. He sends a young military officer to investigate. Marc, soon finds evidence which supports the case for murder, but not the motive. As his investigations continue he can see why the farmers hav [...]


    6. Interesting setting of a mystery in Upper Canada, Ontario before Canada got it's independence. A newly commissioned ensign is sent to investigate a mysterious death in a small town near Toronto. The town is full of different factions supporting the crown, individual rights, independence, or annexation by the United States. Time frame 1836 . Overall interesting since I know little about Canada's history. On the other hand the mystery is a bit tepid and the characters are clumsily drawn. I can't s [...]


    7. Probably worth more than three stars but I can't put four. I liked the history (although I tyhtink it could have used a little more explanation) and the mystery was good but not spell binding. Really, what makes it middling for me is the characters. Our hero was, well, rather blah. Rather two dimensional. I'll likely give this series another go because there's promise there.


    8. 3 and a half stars. set in the Cobourg area of Upper Canada, before the Rebellion of 1837. first of a long mystery series. an engaging detective whose sympathies are increasingly with the ordinary people rather than the upper-class English class to which he belongs, an exciting time in history, but somehow the book - worthy though it is - never really takes fire.


    9. The historical aspect of this book was enjoyable for me--learning about the times: the relationship to England and the country to the south and the impact on the political situation. The writing was pleasant. I wanted to keep reading although it did not grab me the way Dubious Allegiance did.


    10. This was an easy read but entertaining. It made me curious enough to want to try some more in the series - when I want something light. Hopefully the subsequent books in the series have better editing. I found the mistakes annoying.


    11. This is the first book in the Marc Edwards mystery series, written by my former Faculty of Education English professor. Set in Upper Canada in the early 18th century, Don Gutteridge brings his characters and the period to life. Great historical fiction.



    12. This is a good Canadian Historical Mystery. Gutteridge, an academic who in retirement turned to mystery writing has a very fine had on the times and tenor of pre-confederation Upper Canada.





    13. Really enjoyed this - it's a place and historical period I'm interested in, and besides spinning an enjoyable yarn, the author successfully evoked a Canadian winter for me.
