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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
