Teaser Tuesday: City of God by Beverly Swerling

This week my teaser comes from City of God by Beverly Swerling. I have big plans to have a review up for this book before the end of the week. Will have to see if that comes to fruition or not!

All four of Beverly Swerling's books have dealt with the history of New York and this teaser is speaking of one of the big events in the city's history. The teaser comes from page 172:

By three A.M on Wall Street the supposedly fireproof Merchants' Exchange had gone up, the greeddy flames devouring even stone and iron. When the sixty-foot cupola crashed to the ground, the seven men who had been trying to rescue the life-size bronze statue of Alexander Hamilton had to jump out of the way to save their lives, and Hamilton's statue was smashed to pieces by falling chunks of marble. By four the Tontine Coffee House, three blocks to the east, was ashes as well.

Teaser Tuesday is host by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!
