Historical Fiction At It's Finest! This edge of your seat, thrilling spy novel is full of espionage, adventure and secret military operations during the Revolutionary War. Set in a time familiar to everyone, this book takes you behind the scenes to an unknown, yet exciting battle being waged against the British by a secret group of elite forces. The Patriot Spy is historical fiction at its finest, creating a cast of characters that you cheer for, laugh with, and love. From start to finish, you’ll flip through the pages, eager to know what happens next as these brave soldiers fight for the right to be free. I was provided a copy of the book by BTS eMag for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review – all conclusions are my own responsibility.

An exciting look at early battles of the Revolutionary War with the concomitant development of a military intelligence mission. Well drawn characters you care about, struggling in the dangerous circumstances of the time. I very much look forward to the next book in this series.

As a former history professor at the university level, I wish we had had more works of this quality to share with students. This book is extremely well-written; the story moves well, the characters, especially the protagonist, Jeremiah Creed, are very well-developed, and the battle scenes put the reader right in the middle of the action. On top of this, the historical setting is accurate. One can read an exciting novel and learn history at the same time. Such a deal!! I compare this book favorably with Michael Shaara's The Killer Angels.

This first novel of S.W. O'Connell is an intriguing piece of historical fiction. He's done a great job developing the characters and developing the story line. A great read. Looking forward to the next release in the Yankee Doodle Spy series.

An interesting story about a fairly neglected area of military historical fiction. The author gives hints of the back-stories to come, which promises well-developed characters as well as good plotting and pacing. The first book is an indicator of what promises to be an exciting series.

A must-read for the military history enthusiast.
