Stanley Cloud is an amazing writer! In this story, he puts together fact with fiction, and makes this story for a superb read! I've done research on this subject prior to buying the book, so when I read the book, a lot of the fact did come to light. This book is excellent for those who are history buffs like myself or for people that like mysteries. The Manhattan well itself still exists in Soho, in an old Bistro restaurant on Spring Street, in the basement. I've seen pictures of it, online. You won't be disappointed in reading this book. A lot of things mentioned in this book actually happened right here, in Manhattan. Alexander Hamilton is buried in the Trinity Churchyard in the area of the new World Trade Center. Aaron Burr is buried next to his father in New Jersey in the graveyard near the University. I still have this story on Kindle, & I'm going to read it again in sometime in the future.

Had to write a review before I even finish reading (am at the trial now) because this book has really brought a part of our 'early history' to life through these two men Hamilton and Burr. We tend to gloss over and elevate our 'founding fathers' only to find on a closer look they (and we) were not much different from today's politicians/humans. Besides the murder, the "Manhattan Well Project" could have taken place last week instead of 200 years ago. The bank lived on and was incorporated years later with JP Morgan Chase. Thanks to Mr. Cloud for reigniting my interest in history, for humanizing Hamilton and Burr, and giving me some 'laugh out loud I can't believe he did that' moments on the antics of Burr. I highly recommend this book, and hope for more.

A real page turner. Studiously reseached by this outstanding author who in the past has only done non-fiction. Good presentation of that era of US history and the subject matter is quite interestion. Highly recommended!

The book totally engaged my interest and I also found it very enjoyable. The story was very intriguing and I learned important historical facts about one of our founding fathers. It was very carefully researched. It prompted me to go on to other books on Hamilton such as Ron Chernow's biography.
