Rate this:
Historical mysteries fly off the shelves these days. At the same time, millions of Civil War buffs--pilgrims to battle sites and fans of Ken Burns's documentary--devour all they can read about those four fatal years. Dead March, vivid and suspenseful, rich in period detail and the tension of its times, stands poised to capture this twofold audience.In the gilded Virginia spring of 1861, secession talk fills Richmond's parlors and dark doings are afoot in its medical school and cemetery. Narcissa Powers, a well-to-do young white widow, is thrown together with Judah Daniel, a free black herbalist and "conjure woman," to solve the murder of a slave girl whose cadaver is dug up by anatomists and their grave robbers. Aided by a fledgling British news correspondent, these two women from opposite ends of society risk their lives as they infiltrate the worlds of men, medicine, and war that are about to collide in the bloody battle of First Manassas.Dead March is the opening salvo in a series that will delight both mystery and Civil War buffs.
