Caper enthusiasts, along with history buffs, will love this one. A clever heist pulled off in the midst of the American Revolution. One gets a clear sense of the era, its commonplace brutality etc., acted out on stage by the book's larger-than-life, colorful characters. Sean Colerain, the young hero, has been branded for sedition in his native Ireland, which makes him an easy recruit for a plot to waylay the King's gold bullion being sent to the New World to finance the construction of a superfortress to defeat the American rebels. Along the way, Sean meets and falls in love with the lovely Beth O'Connell, daughter of a British officer. Twists and turns abound in 'The Brand'...a fast-paced, smooth read told in a most entertaining manner. Step back to the 18th century and America's War of Independence and enjoy this one.
