It is America 1861 and North and South have never seemed further apart: the threat of civil war hangs heavy in the air... For Lon Price, the issue is simple. He has inherited from his Methodist father both a burning sense of right and wrong, and a desire to see an end to slavery.

But his departure is not necessary, for the federal government is well aware of the agency's work, and in Lon they see a primie candidate for secret service... Margaret Miller is part of a family that prides itself on supporting the South: her father Calhoun is owner of the secession supporting Baltimore Independent; her brother Cicero has similar views, though the circles he moves in are considerably less law-abiding. When Calhoun is killed by a Yankee bullet, Margaret becomes as determined as Lon to uphold the ideals of her father...… (más)

A regular potboiler, despite having some real historical characters woven into the stilted and unlikely action. Almost without exception the two-dimensional, fictional characters behave in an imprudent and unlikely manner, held together only by a set of coincidental events and happenings that defy reasonable probability. If this were to be the yardstick, I'd be very unlikely to consider reading more by this author. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. It takes you right into the events leading up President Lincoln's assassination. I got sucked into the events and found myself hoping that the book's protagonist would be able to thwart the assassination, though I knew it couldn't happen. ( )
