417 pages5 hours


A Union spy is pulled out of retirement to find a killer in this “action-packed” historical mystery (Publishers Weekly).
It’s 1862, and as far as Harrison Raines is concerned, the Civil War is finished. Since the First Battle of Bull Run, he has served the Union Army as a spy, crisscrossing the war-torn country and witnessing more death, misery, and carnage than any man should. Although he’s a Virginian, he loathes slavery, and is proud to have served Abraham Lincoln. But Raines has had enough killing, and wishes only to retire to a tranquil patch of land. He acquires a plot in the hills of western Virginia and settles down to the life of the gentleman farmer—but Raines’s days will not remain quiet for long.
When a local parson known to have Union sympathies is killed, Raines fears his new neighbors may come after him next. To secure a peaceful retirement, he will have to stare down death one more time . . .

The Antietam Assassins is the sixth book in the Harrison Raines Civil War Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
