The Two Georges
By Harry Turtledove and Richard Dreyfuss
What if there had been no American Revolution? In this witty "alternative history" mystery, the symbol of the modern North American Union is the portrait of the Two Georges -- Washington and George III -- reconciling their differences. When the painting is stolen, apparently by the terrorist Sons of Liberty organization, Mountie Colonel Thomas Bushell is tasked with tracking it down and returning it to the government -- before King Charles III arrives in the new world.
