  • What a story I ve been enjoying Brad Meltzer s books for years but this is the best of them all Who knew that a tale of a secret plot against George Washington could be so riveting This is an easy to read, engrossing story that reveals much about the early years of the American revolution A solid recommend I won a copy of this book in a giveaway for this honest review.


  • While the story itself is compelling and dramatic enough, Meltzer s buid up to the conspiracy is really what makes this book so enjoyable Particularly the story of the Long Island counterfeiters finding themselves wrapped up in the plot.
