For the devoted, some might say obsessive, Civil War reenactors, authenticity is key — right down to the specifics of dying on the battlefield. Except for real bullets. So when hard-core Confederate reenactor Wiley Cross dies during the annual Fourth of July reenactment of Pickett's Charge, foul play is suspected.
For historian Miranda Lewis, the bizarre incident is personal. The dead man is the estranged husband of her good friend, and soon Miranda is drawn into the curious, often misunderstood, world of reenactors as she attempts to find out who shot — and poisoned — Wiley. The clues span the passions of a bygone era, and the enduring human foibles of hatred and revenge, leading Miranda on a perilous reenactment of a murder… where her own historical accuracy could prove fatal.
