Benedict Arnold is the archetypal traitor-or was he? Abducting Arnold richly dramatizes the American Revolution's most brilliant officer while turning little-known history into an edge-of-your-seat thriller.

General Arnold had already become America's foremost hero when an internal coup among the Patriots gave "Radicals" control of the Continental Congress. With King George III all but overthrown, these newcomers exploit the vacuum of power to tyrannize their fellow Americans.

Until they collide with Arnold. Gravely wounded but still dedicated to the Patriots' Cause and to his Loyalist bride, Arnold wages the fiercest battle of his career to protect both wife and Cause from home-grown dictators.

Treason seems the only way out. But Arnold's young cousin, a devoted Patriot, foils the treachery just in time. That sends the disgraced general fleeing to British lines while furious Americans plot to kidnap him for trial and execution. His cousin agrees to manage the abduction - until she discovers explosive information tying her fate and that of the new country to his...

A novel of espionage, heartbreakingly close calls, and profound betrayal, Abducting Arnold will entrance you from its opening pages to its surprising denouement!
