The Devil Take Tomorrow
Genre: Historical fiction
Fiction becomes believable and fascinating in this thrilling Revolutionary War adventure. Rebel spy Ethan Matlock must thwart a plot to assassinate America’s indispensable man–General George Washington. Two things stand in Ethan’s way–20,000 redcoats and the provocative Miss Maddie Graves, whose fierce devotion to the American cause ironically threatens his mission.
George Washington has been marked for death. British agents embedded in the Continental army wait only for the order to strike. Racing against time, rebel spy Ethan Matlock sets out to protect the one man who can save the Revolution. Without General Washington, the whole American enterprise might easily collapse, for no one else has demonstrated the ability to keep together an army that constantly threatens to fall apart.
Boldly Ethan infiltrates the British military, occupiers of grand old Philadelphia. Surrounded by twenty thousand redcoats, aware that the slightest misstep could lead to the gallows, Ethan resorts to vicious measures to unravel a conspiracy of power-hungry men. Against his better judgment, he tangles with the provocative Miss Maddie Graves, whose fierce devotion to the American cause ironically threatens his mission.
