      The Glynis Tryon books have been praised by Sara Paretsky as "well-written...historically accurate and telling." New York Newsday wrote, "the genius of Monfredo is to teach herstory' while absorbing the reader in a good old-fashioned mystery." Now the small-town librarian returns, in one of the most fascinating chapters from our nation's history... Based on an actual event, The Stalking-Horse is set on the eve of the American Civil War. Glynis Tryon's niece, Bronwen, has joined Pinkerton's Detective Agency. While on her first assignment in secessionist Alabama, two of her fellow agents are murdered. When word reaches Seneca Falls that Bronwen is in trouble, Glynis heads south and finds her niece caught in the midst of a diabolical plot designed to strike at the heart of the United States government.
