“General Washington’s other Aides were curious about what Capatin Alexander Hamilton was doing, but they did not glance at him, hunched over his desk in the far corner.” ~ Shadow Patriots
This sentance did pull me into the story, anything that opens with a message of Alexander Hamilton and George Washington as a mention is good to me. I wish the rest of the book had been as attention keeping.
