(From the publisher):
Abraham Lincoln is assassinated whilst at the theatre in Washington. A great and honourable president is mourned by many, but his passing brings rejoicing to those Southerners defeated in the Civil War.
Adam Steele finds he has a private grief to mourn when he discovers the body of his father slowly swinging on a makeshift gallows. This is a sorrow he cannot share with other men.
He sets out on a mission with deadly purpose – a vendetta that will turn old friends into enemies, that will bring a slow or sudden death to the marked men.
