Overview


Murder in Colonial America...

1774: Spring brings uncertainty to Boston as the entire city awaits the Crown’s response to the infamous Tea Party. Urged on by the Sons of Liberty—and Abigail’s husband, John—militias form and arm themselves. But when a Harvard Loyalist is murdered, the only side Abigail finds herself on is the side of justice…
 
After an attempt on the life of her scholarly young nephew Horace, Abigail travels to Harvard to investigate. A mysterious woman had hired Horace to translate some Arabic, only to leave him disoriented and frightened—and at the mercy of her henchmen. But Horace survived—with a tale of pirate treasure…
 
While Abigail and Horace try to unravel the strange circumstances, one of his fellow students—a young man loyal to the King—is murdered. And though the Sons of Liberty are desperate to find the rumored gold, Abigail is more interested in the truth. For the Devil’s treasure comes with a curse that could bring down anyone, regardless of where their allegiance lies…

    a great pre Revolutionary War whodunit

    Seventeen years old Harvard oriental language student Horace Thaxter sends a note his Aunt Abigail Adams in Boston saying someone who his two uncles John and Mercer gave a reference to tried to kill him. Abigail heads to Cambridge where Horace tells her that Mrs. Lake hired him to translate Arabic. He explains to his aunt the note was written in Arabic letters but as if it was English and the content involved a 1688 meeting between pirate Captain Jezebel Pitts and Governor Morgan. After completing the project, Mrs. Lake is upset that there is no reference in the note about the Devil's Treasure she seeks. She gave Horace some food, which he insists were poisoned and her thugs abandoned him on a remote road; a farmer saved his life.

    As Abigail investigates what happened to her nephew, someone murders another student George Fairfield who had remained loyal to King-George. Abigail expands her inquiry from the lost treasure to the homicide while The Sons of Liberty want the allegedly cursed gold as do loyalists, neutralists and avarice souls.

    The latest Abigail Adams mystery (see The Ninth Daughter) is a great pre Revolutionary War whodunit that brings out the divisions between residents of Massachusetts as many oppose combat against the king. The investigation is clever as intelligent Abigail shows why she would one day be one of the more brilliant Fist Lady's. However, it is the historical tidbits, (like the oriental languages which include Russian, Persian, Arabic and biblical Aramaic, but not Chinese or Japanese) that anchors this great tale. Barbara Hamilton writes a delightful Abigail Adams tale one year after the tea.

    "Sup with the Devil" is the 3rd book in the Abigail Ad

    "Sup with the Devil" is the 3rd book in the Abigail Adams Mysteries written by Barbara Hamilton. I love this series and hope that it will continue. The author has met her stride with Sup and I hope that there are more books coming. Not that the author, Barbara Hamilton, doesn't know how to write a great mystery. She has written most of her books as Barbara Hambly.

    Ms. Hamilton has stayed true to character in her depiction of Abigail Adams. Mrs. Adams was a highly intelligent and well read woman whose advice was sought by not only her husband, but other high ranking men of the era. She basically raised her kids by herself as John was gone for years in Paris, Amsterdam and London where he lobbied for the new nation. She ran their farm and for the most part was the only farmer in the family. I love that Ms. Hamilton did not make her a ridiculous figure as Elliott Roosevelt did with his mother. Maintaining some of the language of the colonial era makes Sup a great historical mystery.

    Ban Harriet Klausner!!

    This is the fifth book she has ruined for me. I refuse to buy something where the plot is revealed. This is a review NOT a book report. She is spoiling it for others.

    Sup With The Devil by Barbara Hamilton continues the sleuthing a

    Sup With The Devil by Barbara Hamilton continues the sleuthing adventures of Abigail Adams on the eve of the Revolutionary War. The series just keeps getting better as tensions intensify. Soon, everyone will be forced to choose sides. But not quite yet. Abigail's nephew, a student at rustic Harvard University, enlists her aid in solving a mystery -- on that involves translations from Arabic, hidden pirate treasure, college pranks, the murder of a popular student who happened to be a British Loyalist, and the dire fate of the black servant who is the prime suspect. Desperate for cash, the Sons of Liberty would like nothing better to get their hands on the pirate loot, but there is more at stake here than a few pieces of eight. The ending is absolute dynamite.
