Shadow Patriots, a novel of the Revolution

Shadow Patriots is about the Culper Ring, a group of George Washington's spies operating out of Manhattan and Long Island. The city of New York itself can hold its own among the American Revolution's cast of pungent characters, but this story centers on the mysterious intelligencer known to history only as 355, the Culpers' code for "lady."


 

Professional Reviews

Shadow Patriots
From Kirkus Reviews (www.kirkusreviews.com)
March 15, 2005

Petticoat espionage in a decidedly stinky, dangerous Old New York.

Few novelists working now have a better grasp of early American history than Robson (Fearless, 1998, etc.), who, among her other virtues, understands that not every colonist talked like a pirate and shuns outré and anachronistic dialect.

... and history takes its ever unpredictable twists and turns as spy meets spy, George Washington tells fibs that would make Parson Weems wince, Alex Hamilton takes offence at everyone and everything, and the Revolution suffers its darkest hours.

Wholly believable, confidently realized, attention-holding historical fiction.
