Very Entertaining, Informative

A very well-written story. The author creates likable characters in a historical context that provides both entertainment value and interesting information about the great city of New York. I've enjoyed additional books by Mr. Rutherford and this one did not disappoint.
readable, exciting, and well written

As a historical novel reader, it is a thrill for me when I come upon a novel like this one. It literally paints a COMPLETE picture of the subject about which the novel is written. It appears very well researched, and thorough, tells the story from various points of view, and finally, tells the story so richly and beautifully, you are unaware of the books' length until the story ends. One of the best I have ever read!!
