Summary (From the publisher):

It's more than a job to Benjamin January. He's been hired to follow a bank official who has embezzled the $100,000 crucial to the survival of a school for freed slaves. Traveling aboard the steamboat Silver Moon, January, his wife Rose, and their friend Hannibal Sefton are sworn to secrecy until they can find the stolen loot. But when the official is found murdered, the job grows more deadly. There is no shortage of suspects - from the sinister slave-dealer to the bullying steamship pilot to the suspiciously innocent "lady" with connections to every river pirate in Natchez-Under-the-Hill. With time running out, January works with a young Jefferson Davis to uncover a dark plot that has cost one man his life... and may cost January and his friends theirs.
