** It's often discussed that the gun-crime statistics in the NAU are getting worse, with as many as ''five'' gun-related homicides that year in New Liverpool alone. New Liverpool is quite clearly the AlternateHistory's equivalent of OTL's Los Angeles, which has a much worse reputation for gun-related violence by several orders.

Added DiffLines:

* SceneryPorn: ''Especially'' heavy during the Alaska segment. Which just makes the resulting gunfight all the uglier.


Added DiffLines:

* YourCheatingHeart: The reason Bushell broke up with his first wife, not to mention the reason he hates Sir David Clarke, Sir Martin's chief-of-staff.

** The Sons of Liberty have pretty much evolved into the alternate history's equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan, with a bit of [[TheTroubles the IRA]] and far-right neo-Nazi 'skinhead' movements thrown in as well.

* AmericaIsStillAColony: The story takes place in an alternate timeline where UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington and [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfHanover King George III]] were able to negotiate a peaceful settlement to the problems between Britain and the colonies. In the 20th century, the North American Union consists of most of North America and is a vital part of the British Empire.



** The novel deconstructs it gradually, however; as the deadline to find ''The Two Georges'' gets increasingly closer, Bushell at several points ruefully reflects that having a form of transport that can cross the nation within hours rather than days might actually be pretty useful in these types of circumstances.

A 1995 AlternateHistory novel by Creator/HarryTurtledove and Richard Dreyfuss (the actor), set in a world where a peaceful resolution was found to what in our world would become the American War of Independence. Essentially, the result was that the American colonies never left the dominion of the British Empire, later fusing together with Canada and the rest of what-would-have-been the United States to form the North American Union.

* HonestJohnsDealership: Despite not entering politics, RichardNixon apparently has the [[AllohistoricalAllusion exact same reputation]] for honesty and fair dealings as in our timeline, with many characters noting that the cars he sells are often very dodgy.

* {{Hypocrite}}: From Bushell's perspective, at least; he often notes that a lot of the Sons of Liberty who view themselves as oppressed and struggling masses under a tyrannical regime are actually quite prosperous and have benefited greatly from the same empire they wish to overthrow. He's a bit more sympathetic to more struggling, poorer types (such as miners) who have more legitimate grievances against their treatment, however.
