Publisher Description

"Narrator Euan Morton’s soft Irish brogue transports listeners to New York City in 1799."— AudioFile Magazine

This program includes a bonus interview with the author



From Paddy Hirsch comes a gritty, evocative audiobook about Irish gangs in New York at the end of the eighteenth century



Seven years after a financial crisis nearly topples America, traders chafe at government regulations on Wall Street, racial tensions are rising, and corrupt financiers make back-door deals with politicians... 1799 was a hell of a year.

Thanks to Alexander Hamilton, America recovered from the panic on the Devil's Half Mile (aka Wall Street), but the young country still finding its way. When young lawyer Justy Flanagan returns to prove his father's innocence, he exposes a massive fraud that has already claimed lives, and one the perpetrators are determined to keep secret at any cost. The body count is rising, and the looming crisis could topple the nation.

A thrilling, unrelenting audiobook that will appeal to fans of early American history and the renegade characters who determined its shape.

"A thriller with strong, multifaceted heroes and villains, tight plotting which rattles along in a city where you can smell the horse droppings and hear the authentic voices."--Patrick Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of the Irish Country Doctor series
