Set in upstate New York on a comfortable estate, the law-abiding family of Mr. Wharton suddenly finds the Revolutionary War at its door. They are an American family with friendly British ties, but they have kept their dual loyalties from affecting their peaceful life, until a secret visit from Wharton's own son, Henry, changes everything.

Henry is a British officer and has crossed behind American lines in disguise. When American troops arrive unexpectedly, Henry is discovered and arrested as a spy. Adding grief to the family's pain is the connection to Henry's captor, the noble Major Dunwoodie. He is Henry's sister's fiance and Henry's own childhood friend; and they must all remain at the Whartons' until Dunwoodie can escort Henry to Washington for his trial.

The plans for departing are delayed when British forces enter the vicinity and a battle breaks out within sight. When the British are defeated, Dunwoodie quarters captured Colonel Wellmere in the Wharton home. Now quarantined with prisoners and quartered American officers, the Whartons wait for their beloved Henry to be taken away and tried. Little does any of them know that the real spy still roams free and plies his trade within their midst.

    " Fun to read while reading, didn't draw you back. Cooper's first, and the ending was written before the middle... so there's a reason for it's "imperfection". Definitely enjoyable. "

    " Cooper has such a long, painful way of writing conversation, but it was an interesting book anyway. Kept my interest until the end, but would not read it again. "

    " The plot and characters were interesting, but the story just dragged the whole way through. I probably will not read much more of Cooper. "

    " Being as JFC's mother is a blood relative I am more than obligated to read his books. "
