The Whiskey Rebels: Praise

"The Whiskey Rebels is a wondrous weaving of fact with imagination, propelling the reader back to a time when America was young.  It’s unadorned reality, told in drum tight prose, is as sharp as a piece of broken glass.  David Liss is a clear master of historical fiction."
Steve Berry, author of The Venetian Betrayal and The Templar Legacy

"What a wonderful book.  Historical fiction is notoriously difficult to do well, but David Liss has mastered the art, and The Whiskey Rebels is an absorbing and entertaining novel of the American Revolution.  A thriller with Washington, Jefferson and Hamilton-an excellent idea, brilliantly executed."
Jon Meacham, editor of Newsweek and author of American Gospel and Franklin and Winston

"David Liss is a terrific novelist with a gift for imagining another time, another place. He is one of the best."
Paulette Jiles, author of Stormy Weather and Enemy Women

"David Liss’s The Whiskey Rebels is a breathtaking, breakneck tale  from the interwoven viewpoints of a top Revolutionary spy, and of the  brilliant and cunning woman who becomes both his ally and his  nemesis. The powerful portrayal of an era of rampant, freebooting  capitalism run amok that lay at the dawn of–and could have  destroyed– the new American republic."
Katherine Neville, author of The Eight and The Fire

"David Liss turns his mastery of historical fiction to the thrilling origins of American capitalism with fantastic results. A gripping, visceral adventure of revenge, ambition and romance filled with surprising twists and insights, The Whiskey Rebels will bring Liss fans and newcomers alike under the spell of one of today’s finest writes of historical fiction."
Matthew Pearl, author of The Poe Shadow and The Dante Club
