Abstract:

In July 1916, a spit of land in New York Harbor called Black Tom Island exploded, pelting the Statue of Liberty with shrapnel, devastating much of lower Manhattan, and casting a fiery orange glow over New York City. The attack, so massive that people as far away as Maryland felt the ground shake, had been shockingly easy. America was riddled with networks of German saboteurs ... Three lawyers - John McCloy, Amos Peaslee, and Harold Martin - made it their mission to solve the Black Tom mystery. With the pace of a legal thriller and the detail of the richest history, The Detonators is the first full accounting of a crime and a cover-up that resonate strongly in a post-9/11 America.
