KIRKUS REVIEW

Long, episodic, Tory tangles, with a Farnolish feel to the telling, in this romance of the American Revolution. Ian is New Yorker born, has acquired the reputation of Rakehell in Europe, returns to his homeland, via Boston, just in time to stumble into Service with the British at Concord. Then follows a panorama of pursuits, crossed romance, spy ring complications, et al, until Ian escapes with Lady Barbara, sister of his best friend, to Quebec, where the war catches up with them again, as Arnold and Montgomery begin their assault. Just a good adventure-romance, with lots of obstacles to a happy ending, but with no particular urge to argue the rights and wrongs of the case.
