About the Author

William Martin is the New York Times bestselling author of ten novels, an award-winning PBS documentary, and a cult classic horror movie. His first novel, Back Bay, introduced treasure hunting hero Peter Fallon, who has now appeared in five novels, and spent fourteen weeks on the New York Times list. Since then, Martin has been telling stories of the great and the anonymous in American history, from the Pilgrims to 9/11. His novels, including Cape Cod, Annapolis, City of Dreams, and The Lincoln Letter, have established him as a storyteller whose smoothness equals his ambition (Publishers Weekly). He lives near Boston with his wife and has three grown children. In 2005, he was the recipient of the prestigious New England Book Award, given to an author whose body of work stands as a significant contribution to the culture of the region. In 2015 he received the Samuel Eliot Morison Award.


"A rip-roaring page turner. A perfect read!"--Boston Globe
"Spellbinding...Ingenious."--Cincinnati Enquirer
"Marvelous...captures the reader from page one and holds to the explosive ending."--King Features Syndicate
"Martin has carefully researched the topography of old Boston and tidily balances his inventive plot with narrow escapes and stopwatch action, including a subway tunnel dig and shootout...a bracing brew for long cold nights"--Kirkus Reviews

"Martin's first novel is a clever and entertaining blend of history, family, saga, and mystery."
--Publishers Weekly
