Publisher's Summary

In a quiet room in the White Swan Inn, sunlight slowly breaks through the curtains, revealing two young lovers - an American seamstress and an English officer. They have been brutally, ritualistically murdered in their sleep. It is a grisly scene that can mean only one thing: There is a traitor within the American Revolution.

The year is 1779. General Washington, struggling to keep his army together, sends his best spymaster, Matty Grove, to investigate the killings. As Matty follows the trail of clues, he comes up against more questions. Who gave the killer his orders? How much does the mole know of the Revolution's plans? Is this treason a matter of principle or simply profit?

With The Traitor author Dan Sherman brings the political and economic maneuverings of the Revolution into vivid detail. The rising pace and complex characters in this stunning work of historical fiction will have history buffs and fans of modern espionage alike clamoring for more.

The Traitor is a super-excellent spy story !

The Traitor is a wonderfully written spy story, with edgy, real-life characterizations. This MA in English Literature rates this 5 stars. You can't get any better than a writer like Dan Sherman, who has been writing since he was a 7 year old, and it shows. Not only is this one a great story, with tons of twists and turns, it is a well-researched, and that makes it a fantastic story that one can learn a lot from just by reading it. Way to go Mr. Sherman. I can't wait for your next book. I've read everything you've written, and I've learned a lot about the iron curtain and Europe, in wartime and peacetime, and all those facts you've inter-woven into your books that changed history. Anyone reading these stories will gain wisdom and that's really saying something!
