Fairly gripping story about a Jewish Union Soldier who did his part as a spy during the civil war.

This book has everything in it from romance to intrigue and mystery, action, and solid civil war facts about the involvement of Jews in the Civil War. The author's notes at the end are also very interesting.

The reason this book is not getting 4 stars from me (I give it more 3.5 stars) is because while well written and definitely interesting, the main character felt somewhat detached and overall, was not a likeable character. That's not to say those things make a great book - just that the book could have benefited more I think by making him more human. The author touched some on his conflict from doing his duties, but I really didn't feel a struggle from him. It's hard to explain, but the book is a worthwhile and interesting read.
