America, 1787. Ethan Saunders, once among General Washington’s most valued spies, is living in disgrace after an accusation of treason cost him his reputation. But an opportunity for redemption comes calling when Saunders’s old enemy, Alexander Hamilton, draws him into a struggle with bitter rival Thomas Jefferson over the creation of the Bank of the United States.

Meanwhile, on the western Pennsylvania frontier, Joan Maycott and her husband, a Revolutionary War veteran, hope for a better life and a chance for prosperity. But the Maycotts’ success on an isolated frontier attracts the brutal attention of men who threaten to destroy them.

As their causes intertwine, Joan and Saunders–both patriots in their own way–find themselves on opposing sides of a plot that could tear apart a fragile new nation.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Liss delivers a portrait of post-colonial Philadelphia and New York, as well as the western frontier, that is convincing and acutely detailed.”

    Houston Chronicle

  • The Whiskey Rebels is that increasingly rare find—a book that’s a truly satisfying read…[Liss is] a skilled storyteller, creating compelling characters and an absorbing narrative…Saunders is a likeable hero, with enough flaws to make him truly appealing.”

    Free Lance-Star

  • “Marvelous…Educational, entertaining, and thoughtful…A fabulous new work of historical fiction…What distinguished Liss’s first three novels in the suspense genre was the literary quality of his stories and prose. This quality is even more evident in [this book]…Liss possesses talent that cannot be denied.”

    San Antonio Express-News

  • “[The Whiskey Rebels] will give you an entertaining, detailed historical perspective on greed, financial mismanagement, and political bungling.”

    Contra Costa Times

  • “A raucous mix of historical fiction and action-adventure thriller…Like all of Liss’s novels, this one has a remarkably complex plot…Rich in fascinating detail.”


  • “Liss deftly ties together two elaborate plots, displaying his familiarity with eighteenth-century financial history, and offers a fascinating look at the factions vying for power in the early years of this country’s existence.”


  • “Liss does a remarkable job of capturing the early days of the republic, the excitement of building a country from the ground up, as well as the underlying fear that the experiment might just as easily fail as succeed. The plot twists will keep readers turning the pages, but the lovely prose and finely drawn, sympathetic characters—intelligent, passionate Joan Maycott, especially—will make them want to slow down and savor the book.”
