National Treasure meets Hamilton in a breathless history-based thriller from an outstanding new voice.

Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it. . . .

When seventeen year-old Jasper is approached at the funeral of his deadbeat father by a man claiming to be an associate of his deceased parents, he’s thrust into a world of secrets tied to America’s history—and he’s right at the heart of it.

First, Jasper finds out he is the sole surviving descendant of Benedict Arnold, the most notorious traitor in American history. Then he learns that his father’s death was no accident. Jasper is at the center of a war that has been going on for centuries, in which the descendants of the heroes and traitors of the American Revolution still duel to the death for the sake of their honor.

His only hope to escape his dangerous fate on his eighteenth birthday? Take up the research his father was pursuing at the time of his death, to clear Arnold’s name.

Whisked off to a boarding school populated by other descendants of notorious American traitors, it’s a race to discover the truth. But if Jasper doesn’t find a way to uncover the evidence his father was hunting for, he may end up paying for the sins of his forefathers with his own life.

Like a mash-up of National Treasure and Hamilton, Matthew Landis’s debut spins the what-ifs of American history into a heart-pounding thriller steeped in conspiracy, clue hunting, and danger.

***About Matthew Landis***

Author Matthew LandisRaised in Bucks County, PA, Matthew Landis returned home after four amazing years at Penn State to the greatest job of all time: teaching 8th graders American History. He also convinced the most ridiculously amazing girl he’s ever known to marry him, bought a dog, lived in a renovated barn for two years, and then decided it was time for a home that didn’t have animals underneath.

It’s simpler than that: Matthew loves history, but not in the old, awful, kill-me-now-please kind of way. His passion is convincing his students that the past is actually hilarious, shocking, tragic, disturbing, and altogether UN-boring. While getting his graduate degree in History at Villanova, he realized that there was yet one more way to do this: write contemporary young adult books laced with history to convince his students that the past doesn’t have to be a life-sucking topic. That’s a huge reason why he wrote The League of American Traitors.

Some other stuff: Matthew loves poetry but doesn’t understand it; he wants Gordon Ramsay to give him a fatherly hug at some point; he tends toward the unapologetically dramatic; he’s a recovering gamer who can sometimes be found reading the novelization of HALO. He firmly believes that self-deprecating humor is the best kind.
