It's autumn, 1765. Parliament wants to assert power over the American colonies and pressures an irascible royal governor, ambitious customs officers, and a depressed naval captain to improve New York's revenue collections. Throughout the Hudson River Valley, citizens begin choosing between submission and resistance. Complicating matters, the French king dispatches agents to foment rebellion. Molly and Jean-Luc St. Alembert return for their second adventure. The young couple struggles against established business competitors and individuals on both sides of the ocean who want the up-and-comers dead. Samuel Endicott crafts a gripping story of tyranny, ambition, and love. Colonial Manhattan comes alive before your eyes.
