Agent 355

Book: Agent 355
Author: Marie Benedict

The tide is turning against the colonists in the Revolutionary War, and 18-year-old Elizabeth Morris cannot sit by idly. Quietly disdainful of her Tory parents, who drag her along to society events and welcome a British soldier into their home during their occupation of New York City, Elizabeth decides to take matters into her own hands. She realizes that, as a young woman, no one around her believes that she can comprehend the profound implications of being a nation at war - she is, effectively, invisible. And she can use this invisibility to her advantage. Her unique access to British society leads her to a role with General George Washington's own network of spies: the Culper Ring.

Based on true events, Agent 355 combines adventure, romance, and espionage to bring to life this little-known story of a hero who risked her life to fight for freedom against all odds.-Goodreads

Review: This was an interesting, quick listen about a female spy in the Culper Ring. While I overall enjoyed this, it was a tad too short for my liking. Benedict could have delved deeper into the story to make it unforgettable. 

Grade: 3/5
