Review by Library Journal (2009-10-01)

In 1773 Boston, Abigail Adams finds a dead woman in her friend Rebecca's home and then realizes that Rebecca, too, is missing. The ship bearing the first of the controversial taxed tea from England is about to enter Boston Harbor, seditious patriots are agitating for freedom, and when her husband John is accused of the crime, Abigail launches a murder investigation more dangerous than she realizes.

Verdict: Hamilton, a pseudonym of Barbara Hambly (known for her Benjamin January historical's), has just the right touch to guide the intelligent Abigail through the dangerous shoals of being a patriot while seeing the good side of the Colonies' English rulers. There are no missteps here in what should prove to be a captivating series for all historical fans. [See Prepub Mystery, LJ 6/1/09.]
