From the Publisher
"Thomas Fleming's stunning panorama of the fledgling nation, is a parable of titanic intellect and potential subverted by ambition; of vindictiveness, venality, lust, chimerical visions of empire and, finally, murder....DUEL approaches Greek tragedy in its breadth." - Katharine Whittemore 09/29/1999 Times Literary Supplement
"DUEL unfolds a rich narrative of Alexander Hamilton's last year....Fleming has a novelist's eye for the telling, concrete detail." - Lance Banning 12/01/2000
