Interesting historical story and very accessible. I did listen to this as an audiobook and felt like it would be more entertaining and easier to follow if I just read the book. The narrator was good but it‘s just easier for me to follow when there are names and dates I need to remember

A fascinating and exhaustive history of intelligence and counter-intelligence, stretching from ancient Egypt under the Pharaohs right up to WikiLeaks and Edward Snowden.

His first foray into nonfiction. I‘m not sure about these theories. Will do some research on his references.

I love history and the Revolution, so this book was right up my alley. A quick read due to the authors‘ thriller style, and it would have been even faster if they didn‘t repeat so often.

This is well written, and it shows how narrow our margin of victory was. Still, this is history as we‘ve all been taught it. Over. And over. And over. If you did well in 4th grade, spend your time elsewhere.

As a history buff, some of the things mentioned in this book I had read about before but this goes more in-depth into the conspiracy and participants. One thing that caught my attention was all the places/things named after Tryon. Including Tryon, NC, which is about an hour from where I live. Very good book.

#Audiobiking on this early spring day! No green yet, but at least the snow is finally gone and it's a glorious 55°. Scott Brick kept me company on the trail. 🎧🚴‍♀️🐴

Did this as an audio. I wasn‘t thrilled about the reader but he wasn‘t bad either. Some parts I zoned out on but I did learn a lot from it. Did this for the #ATY2019 challenge - prompt #51 A book published in 2019.

story of leaders, liars, counterfeiters, and jailhouse confessors. 1776 and some of Washington's bodyguards are part of a treasonous plot along with Gov. of NY William Tryon and Mayor David Mathews. very interesting, entertaining, historical. plot shows we were close to losing Revolutionary War. look at what was going on at the time of our nation's birth. The plot also led to our modern day CIA. recommend this book to those who love history.

CoverToCoverGirl Sounds like a fantastic read! 10mo

Currently waiting for book signing with Brad Meltzer. He's funny and full of inspiring stories. I didn't know that he also writes children's books, the "I am" series about heroes of history. There are some very small fans in this audience. ? I'll have to pick some up for my little cousins. Anyway, I'm really looking forward to reading this one, it looks like a page-turner!

LibrarianRyan His I am series is great. (edited) 10mo
GingerAntics Oh I love Brad Meltzer!!! 10mo
madamereadsalot1 So, I know Brad Meltzer from comic books. Identity Crisis is one of my absolute favorite DC arcs. And my son loves the 'I Am' books. Yet somehow, I was completely unaware that he also wrote political/historical novels. I need to read some! 10mo
inthegreensandblues @madamereadsalot1 Yes, for some reason he wasn't really on my radar, but he is now! I went to this event because I was interested in the book topic, but now I want to explore more from the author too. 10mo
RainyDayReading I remember he used to host a TV show. Brad Meltzer‘s Decoded or something like that talking about conspiracies and such (I remember the D.B. Cooper and the Lincoln assassination episodes the most) I had no idea he also wrote books! 10mo
