"This was a very creative story and fun read. The author sets up an original new approach to an old American mystery, and at the same time creates a deeper, more complex plot that leads the characters into other adventures in future books. Great action and drama for both the present day characters and the colonial characters, and the two worlds are entertwined to keep the reader both enlightened and in suspense. Overall an excellent achievement." -- Amazon reviewer
