A passionate novel set against the backdrop of the American Civil War from the author of the bestselling Robicheaux novels. Another strong title for the burgeoning historical fiction market.
Set in Louisiana and spanning the years 1861-1868, this passionate novel of men, women and war tells the story of the author's ancestor, Confederate soldier Willie Burke. A classic Burke hero, innately moral to the point of lunacy, Willie is soon in conflict with his superiors.
