Customer Review

on 28 June 2013
From 'The American Boy' onwards I have really enjoyed Andrew Taylor's books. However, with this book I feel he has reached the heights of that last 'American' novel and it certainly deserves its short listing in this years Crime Writers Association prize.
A period that is not often covered in contemporary fiction, the time of the American war of independence, is vivdly brought to life through the eyes of a young man sent out to New York as an emissary of the crown. It has everything you expect from Andrew Taylor, an intriguing, engrossing plot, superbly drawn characters some of them with dark depths and an unexpected resolution. One of those novels I really did not want to finish that took me to the heart of a time and helped me see what it was like to be alive then as well as a being a fascinating mystery thriller.
