Antietam Assassins

Michael Kilian, Author . Severn $28.95 (330p) ISBN 978-0-7278-6272-3

Murder and war refuse to leave Union spy Harrison Raines alone in his sixth action-packed exploit. A year and four months of constant battle and intrigue have left the myopic sleuth bone weary of the conflict ravaging a divided nation, and in August 1862 he retires to his farm outside Shepherdstown in the western Virginia hills. But when Union sympathizer Reverend Ashby is gunned down and hanged from a tree, a fate soon shared by a young woman, Raines once again turns detective. Abetted by his delightful sidekick, Indian scout Jacques Tantou, and a new love interest, feisty Allie Robertson, Raines must interrupt his investigation as armies converge near Antietam Creek in one of the Civil War's bloodiest engagements. Kilian (The Shiloh Sisters , etc.) presents another multifaceted crime story intricately wedded to the politics of an ever-fascinating era. Agent, Dominick Abel. (Oct.)
