Synopsis

One of Washington's spies hunts a murderous turncoat in this "fascinating [and] most satisfying" novel of the American Revolution (Publishers Weekly).



In a quiet room in the White Swan Inn, sunlight slowly breaks through the curtains revealing two young lovers-an American seamstress and an English officer. They have been brutally, ritualistically murdered in their sleep. It is a grisly scene that can only mean one thing: There is a traitor within the American Revolution.



The year is 1779. General Washington, struggling to keep his army together, sends his best spymaster, Matty Grove, to investigate the killings. As Matty follows the trail of clues, he comes up against more questions. Who gave the killer his orders? How much does the mole know of the Revolution's plans? Is this treason a matter of principle or simply profit?



With The Traitor, author Dan Sherman brings the political and economic maneuverings of the Revolution into vivid detail. The rising pace and complex characters in this stunning work of historical fiction will have history buffs and fans of modern espionage alike clamoring for more.

Dan Sherman has written a handful of popular thrillers, starting with such near-contemporary successes as The White Mandarin (1982, set in China from 1949 through the 1960s) and The Prince of Berlin (1983, starting at the end of World War II and continuing on into the 1960s) and then moving backward through history to the era of World War I (The Man Who Loved Mata Hari, 1985) and then to the period of the American Revolution (The Traitor, 1987), about the discovery of a mole within the highest command levels of George Washington's army of revolution. His other novels include The Mole, Riddle, Swann, and King Jaguar.
