       Additional Information  
      Ann McMillan has a gift for seamlessly weaving together a "rollicking good mystery and meticulously researched slice of history" (Richmond Times-Dispatch). In Chickahominy Fever she has done it once again, combining suspense with elegant period detail and bringing to life a sweeping, rich, and complex cast of characters from every echelon of Southern society.

    It is the summer of 1862. The Confederate capital of Richmond, Virginia, its hospitals already overflowing, lies under the shadow of the brutal Seven Days Battle. In the mounting confusion Narcissa Powers begins to suspect foul play in the ward. Morphine, the only relief for the brutally injured, is disappearing. And after a mysterious "patient" dies suspiciously, tension mounts. The mystery reunites Narcissa with her old friend and fellow investigator Judah Daniel. Soon the two women, with their British journalist ally Brit Wallace, are drawn into a tangled web of spies and traitors and uncertain loyalties.--
