"The City of New York is firmly in enemy hands. His army holds the upper island of Manhattan by only a hair. The Royal Navy controls the waters around New York. And now the American spy Nathan Hale is trapped behind enemy lines. He turns to his young cavalier, Lieutenant Jeremiah Creed. Sent behind enemy lines, Creed’s small band faces British regulars, angry Tories, and unscrupulous traitors as they weave through the chaos of occupied New York. But Creed’s mission meets with shocking results."
