A Vast and Fiendish Plot--#27 finished

An interesting book about Confederate spies that came down from Canada and tried to start uprising or at least problems in the North.  The focus of the book is about an attempt to burn New York City and it goes on to show how really close they were to doing so.  I hadn't heard of any of this before so it is interesting to read about this side of the war.  Also author went into a lot of the background of how they got to Canada and other missions they were trying to run too.  At end of book, I think author spent a little too much time doing a "what if", almost like it was his way of justifying this as a book.  Still a good & interesting read.

There is 1 WL for this book so I will probably post soon & mail off if accepted.
