“Can I interest you in saving America?”

That’s the text message Peter Fallon receives from a Wall Street bigwig.  It’s not a challenge he can turn down, especially since the country is in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.

Hidden somewhere in New York City is a box of 1780 bonds with a face value of ten thousand dollars.  The Supreme Court is about to decide if these bonds still have value.  If the decision is yes, those ten thousand dollars, at five percent interest, will be worth a very pretty penny...

Peter Fallon and his girlfriend, Evangeline Carrington, must find the box—and fast.  Suddenly, their race against time becomes a race through time as Peter and Evangeline track the stories of New Yorkers whose lives have been changed by the bonds… and all the while they’ll unravel the thrilling and inspiring origins of the City of Dreams.

ONE
Monday Afternoon
PETER FALLON READ THE CALLER ID, pushed the Talk button, and said, “I am not moving to New York City.”
“That isn’t why I’m calling,” said Evangeline Carrington.
“But that’s where every conversation ends up.”
“Listen, Peter, I’m in a bookstore.”
“What are you doing in a bookstore?”
“Buying you a wedding present.”
“I have enough books.”
Peter was sitting in his office. Books everywhere. And in the outer office, more books.

--Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of The Assasin
 
“A fast-moving political thriller...”
--The Boston Globe on The Lost Constitution

“A master storyteller.”
--Seattle Post-Intelligencer

About the Author

William Martin

WILLIAM MARTIN, The New York Times bestselling author of ten novels, is best known for his historical fiction, which has chronicled the lives of the great and the anonymous in American history while bringing to life legendary American locations, from Cape Cod to Annapolis to The City of Dreams.  His first novel, Back Bay, introduced Boston treasure hunter Peter Fallon, who is still tracking artifacts across the landscape of our national imagination.  Martin's subsequent novels, including Harvard Yard, Citizen Washington, and The Lost Constitution have established him, as a “storyteller whose smoothness matches his ambition.” (Publishers Weekly)  He has also written an award-winning PBS documentary and one of the cheesiest horror movies ever made. Nevertheless, he was the recipient of the 2005 New England Book Award, given to "an author whose body of work stands as a significant contribution to the culture of the region."  There are now over three million copies of his books in print.  He has three grown children and lives near Boston with his wife.
