Since this wasn’t an individual biography, bias gets ten points, none that I saw.
The book was very accurate, however, there were a few bits and pieces that seemed to be off so I shifted it to a nine. Accurate book, some stuff off about Andre. If you want me to make a list I marked the pages with inaccuracies.
There were times when I was tempted to put this book down and I was very eager to start another one. This book is good for if you’re inside on a rainy day and feel as if binge reading an entire book. Other than that, I found myself getting quite bored with it in a lot of places where it deviated and began speaking of things like averages that had nothing of importance.
If you’re looking for a book that really goes into not only the Culper spy ring but other spies during the American Revolution as well, than his book is for you. However, there were a lot of points where I know Alexander Rose missed a lot of stuff of importance that should of been put in.
Calculated Average: 8.5/10, looking for an easy to read, quick book about early American spies? This is the place to go.
