Today’s Teaser comes from The Whiskey Rebels, historical fiction by David Liss, involving figures like George Washington, Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. This is a LibraryThing Early Reviewer book, and I hope to have a review posted soon.

The Whiskey Rebels is due to be released September 30th. You can pre-order your copy at Amazon.com.
