E.Thomas Behr has an M.A. in American Literature from the Bread Loaf School of English, and a Ph.D. from Princeton University in Renaissance and 18th Century studies.
He has planned this book as the first in a series of novels that will unfold the lives of the two main characters and the women they love. Later novels will depict Henry Doyle's fight to save his adopted Iroquois nation and his early career as a spy, Peter Kirkpatrick's involvement in the War of 1812 as a privateer captain, and in The Most Bold and Daring Act of the Age, the final successful suppression of the Barbary pirates in 1815, in which Peter rescues Henry from his Algerian captors.
