Book Summary

*Now with a new afterword containing never-before-seen research on the identity of the spy ring�s most secret member, Agent 355

�This is my kind of history book. Get ready. Here�s the action.� �BRAD MELTZER, bestselling author of�The Fifth Assassin�and host of�Decoded

When George Washington beat a hasty retreat from New York City in August 1776, many thought the American Revolution might soon be over. Instead, Washington rallied�thanks in large part to a little-known, top-secret group called the Culper Spy Ring. He realized that he couldn�t defeat the British with military might, so he recruited a sophisticated and deeply secretive intelligence network to infiltrate New York.

Drawing on extensive research, Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger have offered fascinating portraits of these spies: a reserved Quaker merchant, a tavern keeper, a brash young longshoreman, a curmudgeonly Long Island bachelor, a coffeehouse owner, and a mysterious woman. Long unrecognized, the secret six are finally receiving their due among the pantheon of American heroes.
