      An unlikely pair of crime solvers returns in an elegant and haunting Civil War mystery rooted deep in the politics, culture, and lore of its time

    Devoured by both mystery lovers and Civil War buffs, Ann McMillan's Dead March won comparisons to Anne Perry. With the same enthralling blend of vivid suspense and period detail, Angel Trumpet continues the adventures of Narcissa Powers, a well-to-do young white widow, and Judah Daniel, a free black root doctor and conjure woman.

    On a nearby plantation outside Richmond a scene of slaughter greets a homecoming colonel: his whole family butchered, with their servants clutching knives--yet seemingly drugged. Called in by an army surgeon, Judah and Narcissa--aided by their British journalist friend Brit Wallace, and hampered by a spoiled madcap belle with a passion for ghosts and secret passages--explore this bizarre crime. As the two women unravel this deadly knot, another murder makes Judah a prime suspect in a city that quivers at the specter of slave rebellion and shivers in anticipation of the next drum roll . . .
