Sign of Nine Stripes by Carol Amorosi
Third time’s lucky. Or so they say. Angus believes his chance for success lies in the colonies. When he receives an offer of employment, he crosses the Atlantic for the third time to follow his dreams. What could possibly go wrong?
In 1763, Angus followed his heroes, Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon, to the New World on their ground-breaking survey. Five years later, he returned to London with no prospects. Now, Angus sails back to the colonies. But this time will be different. Joel Bailey has offered him a position as a surveyor. His friend, Liam, is there. The uncle he believed dead is there. And a beautiful Native lass is there. Angus thinks he’s finally on his way to making a life for himself.
But there’s an undercurrent of danger running throughout the colonies. Smuggling, protests, and secret organizations are the norm. New taxes and restrictions are being imposed. And people are taking sides against each other.
Angus doesn’t want to choose sides. But when a dead body is delivered to his employer’s home, what choice does he have?
Sign of Nine Stripes is the captivating third book in The MacKay Mysteries historical fiction series. If you like engaging characters, vivid settings, and the political intrigue of pre-Revolutionary America, then you’ll love Carol Amorosi’s enlightening adventure.
