Just spotted this one.

 America's Ben Franklin in: The Electrocution String

Before James Bond, there was Benjamin Franklin: inventor, philanthropist, and the single largest exporter of kicking British ass. Using his array of inventions and weapons, Franklin is a one-man army thirsty for Redcoat blood, especially when he's wrongly accused of treason.

Benjamin Franklin is remembered as America's most kickass Founding Father, but when the champion of the American Revolution is framed for aiding the British, Franklin finds himself wanted for treason and on the run in his hometown of Philadelphia. Now his friends have become his enemies, and his enemies?well, they're still his enemies, too. In order to clear his name, Franklin must battle other colonial leaders like George Washington, John Adams, and Benedict Arnold, all while exposing a devious plot masterminded by an English general.

America's Benjamin Franklin in: The Electrocution String is an explosive and comedic retelling of the most important event in the history of the United States. Benjamin Franklin is the James Bond of his day, from the gizmos, gadgets, and expensive car to the sexy ?Bond girl? Betsy Ross. The Electrocution String is non-stop action, mystery, and comedy all rolled up into one, induced with extensive research in colonial history

Lol John! I want to know (without having to read the book) is how he got a vehicle back then. Or is there some time travelling involved. The author is hawking it on Amazon with an anon ID (well I am assuming it's the author), perhaps we should ask him. devil
