Can I interest you in saving America?

That's the text message Peter Fallon receives from a Wall Street bigwig. It's not a challenge he can turn down, especially since the country is in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. The stock market is wobbling. The Chinese have stopped buying our T-Bills. If we don't get control of our deficit, our economic future looks grim.

But all may not be lost. Hidden somewhere in New York City is a box of 1780 bonds with a face value of $10,000, part of a series of bonds called New Emission Money. The Supreme Court is about to decide if these bonds still have value. If the decision is yes, those bonds, at five percent interest, will be worth a very pretty penny. A lot of very pretty pennies.

Peter Fallon and his girlfriend, Evangeline Carrington, must find the box - and fast. Suddenly, their race against time becomes a race through time as Peter and Evangeline track the stories of New Yorkers whose lives have been changed by the bonds. They'll confront frightened booksellers, heartless businessmen, former flames, renegade treasury agents, and the Russian mafia....and all the while, they'll unravel the thrilling and inspiring origins of the City of Dreams.

    " In the William Martin tradition, a hunt for a missing bit of history, this time in New York City. I enjoyed all of these books. "

    " Great historical fiction read. I enjoyed the NYC and economic history aspect and thought he did a great job of balancing the old and new story lines. I'm looking forward to reading some of his other novels. "

    " Was a good adventure with a lot of history about how New York became the big city it now is. If you like a lot of detail, you'll enjoy this read. "

    " Wow. This novel is quite original and very entertaining in spite of its several flaws. (Which I won't describe here) I thought that the alternating chapters in the (far) past were going to be a drag but I ended up looking forward to them. First novel I read from this author. I'm going to read more. "
