Descriere

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Brad Meltzer unravels the truth behind the secret assassination attempt on George Washington and how the plot helped create the CIA and the FBI in this young listeners' adaptation for younger audiences

1776.

The early days of the Revolutionary War.

It supposedly began with Thomas Hickey, a private in the Continental Army, and New York governor William Tryon. In an astonishing power grab, they plotted to kill Hickey's boss: a man by the name of George Washington.

In the end, Hickey was caught, brought to trial, and found guilty. It would seem he became the first person in the new nation to be executed for treason.

But to this day, nobody knows for sure if this story is true. In The First Conspiracy, Brad Meltzer sheds light on the close-kept secrets and compelling details surrounding this story and exposes the history of how the assassination plot catalyzed the creation of the CIA and FBI.

This fascinating investigation offers young listeners an in-depth look at the facts and remaining questions that surround this contested historical event.

    I have been wanting to read this book and I finally did and I’m so happy I did! It was well restarts the writing was told and such in a treating an interesting way. Although it is set in the revolutionary war era there isn’t a battle to be saying it is the first year of the war everyone is setting up the British has called for reinforcements and I’m just waiting to attack George Washington and his men help drove them out of Boston but are now waiting in New York for the first Bali touring and while they do A treasonous conspiracy is a foot and elbow mini arena on it and Minnie want to see George Washington fall… Many are on his side and will help all the secrets come to light. I was blown away by the details of this book but I will not say because I want it to be as good for those who haven’t read it as it was for me. I completely loved it and thought the narrator who I’ve heard before and did an awesome job! I highly recommend this book if you love history and true crime you’ll love this Book!
