RICHMOND'S BLOODY ROAD
Mr. Saturday's first novel in the Ellis-Eaton series of Civil War historical mysteries. A dead body found in a woodpile in the most vile and criminally infested neighborhood in Washington D.C. in the Spring of 1862 leads young artillery lieutenant Benjamin Eaton and newspaper correspondent Sanford Ellis on a tale of war, espionage and intrigue. Why not take this journey along with them? The armies are marching and the fate of the Union cause may be at stake--mystery and murder is in the air every bit as pungent as the black powder of the guns.
