The nude photo of a teenage runaway shows up on a pornographic website, and the girl's father turns to Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks for help. But these are not typical circumstances, for the runaway is the daughter of a man who's determined to destroy the dedicated Yorkshire policeman's career and good name. Still it is a case that strikes painfully home, one that Banks, a father himself, dares not ignore, as he follows it's squalid trail into teeming London and into a world of drugs, sex, and crime.

The battle of Antietam wielded enormous influence over the course of the cival war. Although not a decisive tactical victory, it boosted the Union cause in profoundly important ways. James A. Mcpherson's engaging and perceptive narrative places Antietam within the broader context of the war, assessing major commanders, evaluating strategic decisions and movements, and explaining the battle's background as well as its seismic political and diplomatic consequences. Anyone interested in learning Antietam should begin by reading this book.
