Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
"These tales of daring intrigue...are exciting reading depicting courage, selflessness, and devotion to a cause," said LJ's reviewer of this chronicle of the South's use of spooks during the Civil War. Though not all will agree with the author's conclusions, these "hair-raising experiences" make for fun reading nonetheless. (LJ 7/70)
