Description
 
Joel Rose (au). Rose captures N.Y. City c. 1824 in his vivid re-imagining of the greatest hoax ever recorded in N.Y. history. When Uncle John DeVoe & a man known only as Lozier sit down in the old Centre Market to discuss the impending doom threatening the City, those around canít help but eavesdrop. Overdevelopment of its southern tip has put the island in jeopardy & unless something can be done to stop it, the city will sink into the harbor. DeVoe & Lozier claim to have been sent to avert disaster & tell the eager listeners of their plan to save N.Y. Who were DeVoe & Lozier? Rose weaves together an evocative & suspenseful tale of skullduggery against an atmospheric recreation of urban street life in the early 19th century.
