Abigail Adams, wife of attorney John Adams, who is deeply involved with the Sons of Libertya secret organization opposing the Crownremains as committed to the cause as her husband. And the arrest of one of the Sons comes as a shock to both of them. Because it isn’t for treason—it’s for murder . . .

The accused is young Henry Knox; the victim, a royal representative to the colonial court. Rumors begin swirling—did the murder indeed arise from the competition between the two for the affections of the daughter of a prominent Loyalist, or was it politically motivated?

Abigail and John believe Knox to be innocent, despite the strong evidence against him. While John works to clear his client’s name, Abigail begins her own investigation. But as she pursues the truth, the killer pursues her—threatening not only Abigail but her vulnerable family . . .
