Overview

For one battle-weary Union spy the Civil War is not over.

The bodies of an Army patrol carrying out a secret mission for the president lay in the blood-soaked soil of a remote ravine, victims of an ambush by soldiers of the same Army under the command of a rogue military leader.

Union spy Grant Bonner’s post-war undercover mission is compromised, exposing him to the danger of a cunning adversary who targets him for death. Forced on a run for his life, his journey takes him to a small frontier town where he uncovers an elaborate conspiracy involving a stolen shipment of gold and the heist of a priceless historical document. 

In order to stop it, Bonner enlists help from an improbable source and risks everything in a lethal confrontation between the hunter and the hunted.

As a big fan of historical fiction, I was definitely NOT disappointed by Tom Rizzo's debut novel! I was engaged and entertained from start to finish...and can't wait for his next book!

Wonderful, exciting story that takes place post civil war. It takes the reader along a trail with the main character Grant Bonner with twists and turns including, murder, robbery, underlying love, and good versus evil. I had trouble putting in down and when I did I kept thinking, "I wonder what is going to happen next." I felt like a mouse on the wall in all the scenes--enjoying what is unfolding without being detected.

Excellent book, beautifully written, great story.  Occurring right after the Civil War, the story grabs the reader and doesn't let go until the end.  This, in my opinion, would make a terrific series.  I hope to see more from Tom Rizzo in the very near future.
