Publisher's Summary

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 18th 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 backdoor 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.

Gritty Story of Old New York

Post revolutionary days in the streets of New York City. A tangled web of murder and Wall Street financial schemes. A combination of historical novel and detective story. The main character Justy was almost supernatural in his fighting skills and ruthlessness with a knife although the aughor lets us know how conflicted he is about his anger. A lot of interesting Irish street slang of the period. A plot with many twists and surprises, suspense and action. Well orchestrated fight scenes. Excellent historical detail and strong plot and characters. I recommend it.
