McMillan is an excellent writer! Even though you kinda know who 'done it', she leads you to the conclusion with twists, turns and gasps and the end isn't what you at all expected! Excellent read and first in this series.
Well-researched and written suspense that takes place in Richmond at the beginning of the Civil War. The author has woven an intriguing plot into a rich tapestry of the period. Civil war buffs, historical fiction fans, and fans of strong women characters will all enjoy this first in a series of four books.
