This is a new author for me and I found a winner. We start off with a prologue that takes us back to 1864 with a Confederate spy on a ship off the coast of North Carolina. She is carrying a letter from Napoleon III addressed to Jeff Davis offering French economic and military aid to the Confederacy in exchange for the "Silver Cross." Then Mr. Kent begins developing a contemporary conspiracy that reaches the upper echelons of Washington D.C. As the plot develops he begins to expose a very complic ...more

Great storyline, superb use of historical references with intrigue and action by a wonderful author. What's not to like?
A fun read. I'm not much for mysteries, but this held my attention all day.

The villains' plots were too murky for me to follow, so I just hung on for the ride.

It was, however, rather eerie toward the end, as I was reading it while initial reports of the Boston terrorist bombings were coming out, and the terrorist group in the background is named April 19, and claims inspiration from the Oklahoma City bombings.
Meg Tolman gets an unexpected call. A friend from college, whom she hasn't spoken to in years, has died and listed her as a contact. As she goes to figure out what to do, Meg finds out that all of her family is dead. The death looks suspicious, like someone clumsily tried to make it look like suicide when it wasn't. As she delves deeper, she discovers a whole conspiracy which is assisted by the government.

The book was a mix of historical fiction along with modern facts. The moved without any dead spots. It also had some very interesting characters. I was disappointed to have one of them killed. I am going to add this author to my favorites. Very well written.

I enjoyed this book as much same. Anderson's first book. Meg Tillman and Nick Journey are nicely drawn characters. I enjoyed the intrigue and suspense as well as the history story line. This was a fast-paced historical mystery.
Very good especially if you are a history buff. Non-stop action beginning to end. Really like the main character, Journey. He is a good guy always trying to do the right thing and do what is best for his family.

Fantastic book, I couldn't put it down. A great combination of mystery, action/adventure and history. Now I have to go read Cold Glory!
Good action and historical fiction. Looks like there was another book ahead of this one that I might need to try out.

Just an adventure story, but a REALLY exciting adventure story.
Very good read!
