The beloved Confederate Captain Nate Starbuck returns to the front lines of the Civil War in this second installment of Bernard Cornwell's acclaimed Nathaniel Starbuck Chronicles. It is the summer of 1862, and Nate has been bloodied but victorious at the battles of Ball's Bluff and Seven Pines. But he can't escape his Northern roots, and it is only a matter of time until he's accused of being a Yankee spy, pursued, and brutally interrogated. To clear his name, he must find the real traitor—a search that will require extraordinary courage, endurance, and a perilous odyssey through enemy territory.
In the second volume of his Civil War trilogy, the bestselling author of Rebel brings history to vivid life. After victorious battles, Confederate hero Captain Nate Starbuck finds himself accused of being a Yankee spy. Failure to prove his innocence and find the real traitor could mean total defeat for Robert E. Lee.
