A New York Times Bestseller
History remembers John Adams as our country's second president. But in the tense years before the American Revolution, he was still just a lawyer, fighting for justice in one of the most explosive murder trials of the era. On the night of March 5, 1770, shots were fired by British soldiers on the streets of Boston, killing five civilians. In this book, bestselling authors Dan Abrams and David Fisher draw on the trial transcript, using Adams's own words to transport readers to colonial Boston, waiting for the spark that would start a war.
