SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

U.S. Kindle Sale: Duel with the Devil

Duel with the Devil: The True Story of How Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr Teamed Up to Take on America's First Sensational Murder Mystery - Paul  Collins

Currently $1.99 for Kindle at Amazon: Duel with the Devil, by Paul Collins.  This is a true crime account from 1800 New York City, where accused carpenter Levi Weeks somehow managed to assemble America's first ever "dream team" of lawyers - led by Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, the two best lawyers in the city, and probably in the entire United States.  (An especially odd pair, as they loathed each other, and Burr would murder Hamilton in a duel in 1804.)
