Editorial Reviews

“A thriller with strong, multifaceted heroes and villains, tight plotting which rattles along in a city where you can smell the horse droppings and hear the authentic voices.” Patrick Taylor, New York Times bestselling author
“Part thriller, part love story, and part cautionary tale, this page-turner also carries intimations of the future…Vivid [and] exciting.” Irish America
“A superb historical whodunit…Effortlessly incorporates the political and economic background of the time.” Publishers Weekly (starred revoew)
“Narrator Euan Morton’s soft Irish brogue transports listeners to New York City in 1799…Morton uses a variety of Irish, British, and Colonial accents to differentiate the characters and softens his voice for Carrie, the lone woman…There’s a good deal of graphic violence and murder, which Morton reads with nary a hitch in his hypnotic Irish lilt.” AudioFile
