Boston, 1774. Ten days after the events of the Boston Tea Party, a representative of the British court is found murdered. Once again, Abigail Adams must untangle a mare's-nest of motives - political and personal - to reveal the murderer, before an innocent man can be hanged...

A cracking mystery, full of interesting background details of everyday household life and customs of 18th Century America.

Intriguing Historical Mystery! 9 Oct. 2010
By Sandra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The second book in this captivating series is even better than the first, in the way it invokes the increasing tensions between the colonial population and the British soldiers stationed in the Boston area.
If I have a criticism, it is that there is too little of the fascinating Lieutenant Coldstone, whose partnership with the erudite Abigail Adams is one of the most interesting elements of the plot!

Love this series 17 Oct. 2010
By L. Stephenson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As much as I loved the first book, this one is stronger since the author has a chance to further develop the characters as the series continues and find out what works for the mystery.

strong historical mystery 9 Oct. 2010
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In 1774, two and half months have passed since the infamous (depending on your loyalties) Boston Tea Party. Teenager Lucy Fluckner asks Abigail Adams to help her friend twentyish bookseller Harry Knox, who is in trouble with the Commonwealth law. The Sons of Liberty printer was arrested for murdering the King's Special Commissioner Sir Joseph Cottrell.

Abigail supports freedom from the crown and is proud of her husband John who is a major participant in the Sons of Liberty's endeavors. As such she agrees to look into the homicide. Stunningly, Lucy's chaperone Mrs. Sandhayes insists the victim was her charge's fiancé; Lucy denies it as she loathed the philandering Tory and though she fails to say so Abigail knows she loves the accused. Abigail and John, who is a lawyer, investigate and quickly learns that a Negro female servant vanished from the home of their client's parents and that the victim had many enemies on all three sides of the brewing revolt.

The key to the strong second Abigail Adams historical mystery (see The Ninth Daughter) is the sense that the reader is in Boston divided between Loyalists, Neutralists, and Rebels just prior to the Revolutionary War. The story line is fast-paced and the investigation super, but it is meeting the prime real persona and fictional characters representing the divided times in Boston in 1774 that makes A Marked Man a strong late eighteenth century thriller.

Another fantastic Abigail Adams mystery! 5 Feb. 2011
By C. S. Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have thoroughly enjoyed both The Ninth Daughter and The Marked Man. Great reads, with interesting historical detail woven through, and characters all worth getting to know--for better or for worse. Ms. Hamilton has done a superb job creating a feisty fantastic sleuth while staying true to the times Abigail Adams lived in and the historical record of who she was. Can't wait to read more!!

The Plot Thickens 29 Jan. 2011
By Deborah J. Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mystery lovers, historical fiction lovers, and admirers of anything Barbara Hambly writes, rejoice! The resourceful and indomitable Abigail Adams is at it again, tracking down the solution to yet another murderous mystery. In an uneasy partnership with British Provost Marshall, she treads the delicate line between a search for the truth and the need to protect the Sons of Liberty from increasing British persecution. This tale involves not only murder and espionage but long-simmered revenge, mistaken identities, forensic pathology, star-crossed lovers, a land grab and a secretive tenant, all while Abigail keeps up a lively household when woman's work ran dawn to dusk.
