Overview

A Union general is murdered while recruiting Irish immigrants. His confessed assassin dies "of cholera" before he can be questioned. In defiance of the local priest, a stubborn investigator opens the killer's grave — and finds the corpse of a young woman many weeks dead, whose identity lies shrouded in the struggle for Ireland's freedom.

From a windswept graveyard to the killing fields of Fredericksburg, Major Abel Jones battles the multiple layers of deceit surrounding the death of a general who lied about his own name. President Lincoln himself demands that Jones produce results — while maneuvering among the North's political factions. But Jones soon finds that no one really wants to know the identity of the murderer. Local authorities deny that the dead girl existed, while the poor mutter of witchcraft. Opposed by Irish secret societies, Jones, born a Welshman, encounters the fierceness and pride of those for whom famine and oppression are recent memories ... only to learn a horrible secret that might destroy his own family. Yet, as he confronts superstition, wartime corruption, ancient hatreds, and remorseless violence, Jones remains determined to honor justice — whatever the cost.
