The Whiskey Rebels is the story of Ethan Saunders and Joan Mycott. A tale of redemption and revenge. It takes place after the United States Revolutionary War (1787). Alexander Hamilton appears in a minor role. Hamilton’s plans cause a catastrophe for Mrs. Mycott. The foundation of Hamilton’s Bank of the United States is the means for Saunders to clear his name. I enjoyed reading the book but I thought the ending was unsatisfying, although Liss did a good job of tying up all the lose end. Liss ran two parallel plots, which alternated between chapters featuring Saunders or Mycott. When the characters meet they were still slightly out of sync. I thought Liss’ use of time and distance was very clever.
