This novel may not be art, but it's a great deal of fun. The wild plot has to do with a 200-year-old document purporting to show that George Washington was a traitor to the American Revolution. A Harvard professor, a woman TV newscaster and an assortment of bumbling American and Russian spies keep the pot boiling. ( )

Two centuries later, a descendent of Davis finds evidence of Washington's betrayal. Before he can announce his findings, he's murdered by KGB agents hoping to use the information to embarrass the United States. But the crucial document vanishes, and the only man who can secure it is Nat Underhill, a Harvard professor who truly must publish or perish.… (more)
