Inhaltsangabe: A mystery series set on the front lines of the Civil War. Battle by battle. Crime after crime.
With a journalist's eye for detail, and a novelist's flair for intrigue and drama, Washington correspondent Michael Kilian has created one of the most original and engaging mystery series of our time. Based on actual events and extensive research, these innovative mysteries follow the Civil War chronologically, battle-by-battle, using a specific historic battlefield as a setting for each novel.
Harrison Grenville Raines was born and raised on a Virginia plantation, but he does not share his family's sentiments on slavery--or war. Hoping to avoid the politics that divide the nation, he earns his living as a gambler, horse trader, and investor. But then, on July 21, 1861, Harrison finds himself in the fiery heart of the war's first battle--when he escorts a British actress to the front lines of Manassas and witnesses the first Confederate victory. But that isn't all he's witnessed--Harrison is the last person to see a Northern major before he was killed fleeing the Rebels. But this seeming act of cowardice is actually a cold-blooded murder. And Harrison is willing to cross the lines between North and South to prove it.
Based on the historic Battle of Bull Run, this remarkable debut unveils the murderous passions that flared during the most devastating military conflict in American history.
