This book has garnered some ecstatic reviews so I was intrigued to read it. It took me a while to get into but it was worth persevering. I particularly enjoyed the chase sequence. It was interesting reading about the early history of the settlers on Manhattan and I thought the ending was very satisfying.
This is now going as a RABCK to Greenbadger.

Spufford's wonderful story of a newcomer to New York in 1746. Richard Smith arrives with an order for 1000 pounds that he wants to cash in, but since he's unknown in the city, it's unclear to anyone including the reader whether the quick-tongued and uncategorisable Richard is a rich young man or a fraudster. This is beautifully, beautifully written and provides vividly the atmosphere of 18th century New York in a way that can't fail to captivate.
