Publisher Comments:

“Can I interest you in saving America?”

Thats the text message Peter Fallon receives from a Wall Street bigwig.  Its not a challenge he can turn down, especially since the country is in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.

Hidden somewhere in New York City is a box of 1780 bonds with a face value of ten thousand dollars.  The Supreme Court is about to decide if these bonds still have value.  If the decision is yes, those ten thousand dollars, at five percent interest, will be worth a very pretty penny...

Peter Fallon and his girlfriend, Evangeline Carrington, must find the box—and fast.  Suddenly, their race against time becomes a race through time as Peter and Evangeline track the stories of New Yorkers whose lives have been changed by the bonds… and all the while theyll unravel the thrilling and inspiring origins of the City of Dreams.

About the Author

WILLIAM MARTIN, New York Times bestselling author of ten novels, is best known for his historical fiction, which has chronicled the lives of the great and the anonymous in American history while bringing to life legendary American locations, from Cape Cod to Annapolis.  Martins first novel, Back Bay, introduced Boston treasure hunter Peter Fallon, who continues to track artifacts across the landscape of our national imagination in more recent works like The Lost Constitution and City of Dreams. His novels, also including Harvard Yard, Citizen Washington, and The Rising of the Moon, have established him as a “storyteller whose smoothness equals his ambition” (Publishers Weekly). He has also written an award-winning PBS documentary, one of the cheesiest horror movies ever made, magazine articles, and book reviews for The Boston Globe. He was the recipient of the 2005 New England Book Award, given to “an author whose body of work stands as a significant contribution to the culture of the region.” He has three grown children and lives near Boston with his wife.
