Evacuation Day & The Lost Deed to Manhattan is a race to find the Deed to Manhattan, before New York City is economically crippled by a terrorist attack. Set during the 2003 Northeast Blackout, this is the story of an unassuming history professor, who is thrust into a world of espionage and deceit when he is forced to employ his years of historical research to locate the Deed to Manhattan. Secret organizations and powerful cabals are countering his attempts so they may complete an attack against New York City centuries in the making. The events surrounding the blackout reveal that New York’s Mayor cannot depend on Federal authorities, or the military. Instead, the Mayor is left with no other choice but to place his hopes for the future of New York City in the 21st Century on his old friend, Marty Dirjke. During the end of the Revolutionary War, General Washington and the militia that would become this country’s oldest military unit developed a coded message to lead to the Deed to Manhattan. Over the past 200 hundred years, these symbols and clues have remained in plain sight as discussion has faded from public discourse - until the excavation for a new subway station in downtown Manhattan renews this once dormant Legend. Now these modern day treasure hunters must decipher a code within Homer’s The Odyssey and embark on an odyssey of their own to locate Manhattan’s birth certificate. Along the way, they learn of the true relationship between the Founding Fathers’ most exalted member, George Washington, and its least understood, Alexander Hamilton. Evacuation Day & The Lost Deed to Manhattan is a historically based thriller that spurs a Legend long since lost to history.
