"A fascinating historical detective story . . . Robertson deftly teases out tantalizing clues without pushing his speculation too far . . . [His] thoughtful chronicle restores to the record a powerful figure whose story continues to challenge America’s vision of itself as a place of equality and harmony."
Kirkus Reviews

"This book is truly something new . . . Robertson is a dogged seeker of truth with a fertile imagination . . . He disinters the secret of those who needed to bury Vesey’s outrage and thereby deflect the light from their outrageous treatment of people they made slaves." –Booklist

"Robertson’s well-researched narrative and smooth style make this an intelligent analysis of, as well as a worthy tribute to, his subject." –Publishers Weekly

"Compelling… A fascinating narrative."–The New York Times

"Excellent. It should not be missed by anyone." –The Baltimore Sun

"A remarkable tale…It deserves a permanent place on America’s history bookshelves." –Los Angeles Times
