Publisher's Summary

From the cohost of Fox & Friends, the true story of the anonymous spies who helped win the Revolutionary War.
Among the pantheon of heroes of the American Revolution, six names are missing. First and foremost, Robert Townsend, an unassuming and respected businessman from Long Island, who spearheaded the spy ring that covertly brought down the British…before they, or anyone else, could discover their names.
Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger finally give Townsend and his fellow spies their proper due, telling the fascinating story of how they passed information to George Washington that turned the tide of the war. Using a network of citizen operatives that included a longshoreman, bartender, newspaper editor, housewife, tailor, and femme fatale, and employing a series of complex codes, the so-called Culper Spy Ring used sophisticated tactics to subvert the British.
Based on previously unpublished research, George Washington's Secret Six is a gripping history of these amazing, anonymous Patriots who risked their lives for our freedom.

Great Expectations Left Unfulfilled

Would you try another book from Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger and/or uncredited?

No, I wouldn't. This book could have been exciting and had a great underlying story. However, it was written in a lifeless fashion and I was never pulled into the story. I found it boring.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I think it would have needed different writers and most certainly a different narrator.

How could the performance have been better?

The narration was terrible. The reader spoke much too fast and did not enunciate clearly.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The best part of the book was the hype leading up to it. I couldn't wait to hear more about these men.

Any additional comments?

Waste of money.

Worst Reader Ever

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This is an interesting story performed by a reader who is so over the top as to ruin the entire presentation. Couldn't finish it by audio and had to go to the written version
