I thought that this was a pretty good book. I was curious as to their methods of not reporting crime if they thought it was better to take care of things themselves instead, and it took awhile to get a feel for each of the many main characters in the book.

But this book is a combination of a history of American Cutters (faster sail ships than previously existed) and the Boston reaction to the Fugitive Slave Act. Altogether, quite interesting.
