KIRKUS REVIEW

A boy in Washington of 1800 runs afoul of land speculators in this historical set in the building days of the capital. David Cameron, 12-years old, arrives in Washington to find his eighteeen-year-old brother missing from the city, and attempts to trace him. After discovering his brother's mission, which was to buy land in Washington, and connecting his brother's disappearance with the sinister Mr. Blaze, David is able through some detective work, a search and a capture, to find the brother and apprehend the land speculators. A good mystery-chase adventure with an authentic picture of Washington at that time.
