New York, 1799. Justy Flanagan returns to his native city having spent five years in Ireland fighting in the rebellion against the English. Bloodied and battered, Justy is no stranger to violence. Now he must use all his skills to uncover the truth behind his father's murder, but while he looks so intently at the past, it is the future that threatens to trip him up... Terrible rumours swirl in the dark underbelly of the nascent city; a young woman is murdered, a massive fraud threatens to destroy America's economy, and the labyrinthine streets of New York hold danger at every turn. As the conspiracy deepens, it becomes clear that those involved will stop at nothing to keep their secrets. Justy is forced to choose: will he betray his father's memory, compromise his integrity, and risk the lives of his closest friends, all in the name of justice? And is he willing to expose a plot that could change the balance of the New World forever?
