Why would an immigrant lad from off the docks of Liverpool, one Robert Morris, pay for critical portions of the American Revolution out of his own pocket, while helping found the first ever bank in the Colonies, and then end up in debtor's prison? Just ask his Bavarian talk therapist, a surgeon in the Hessian Mercenary Army who gets into Morris' complex mind.

Jon Foyt's 12th novel-heavily researched-uncovers the inner motivations of this illegitimate and uneducated immigrant boy who became one of our most unusual Founding Fathers. Relive his affairs, his marriage, and his fortitude, he being only one of three men to sign all vital Revolutionary documents: the Articles of Confederation, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution.
