A Civil War general has been murdered and a man is dispatched from President Lincoln to investigate. Major Jones must find out if the man accused of killing the general really died from cholera, or is still alive, since a young girl's body has been found in the killer's grave. This mystery is set in the time of the beginning of the big immigrations from Ireland, expansion of the railroads, and big mines employing most of the townspeople against the backdrop of the Civil War. It is full of wonderfully drawn characters with good traits and flaws.
