Publisher Description

The second book in Bernard Cornwell’s bestselling series on the American Civil War.

Nathanial Starbuck is a Copperhead: a northerner fighting for the rebel South in America’s Civil War.

Expelled from the Faulconer Legion, Starbuck must travel a hard road before he can rejoin his comrades. He must join the shadowy war of betrayal and espionage, where nothing is certain and no one can be trusted. Starbuck’s journey will take him through the savage prisons of Richmond, across the blood-sodden battlefields of Virginia, and into the deadly high command of the northern army.

Starbuck - fantastic stuff!

As ever with Cornwell, the characters and events are described brilliantly. He is able to transport you back in time effortlessly; with Nate Starbuck he has a hero you want to read about and understand, even though he is on the 'wrong' side. I can't wait to read the next book

Better than part 1!

Another superbly written book by the master! Starbuck's characterisation is much better, there is more battle and it is rich with the description and mood of an ( almost) beseiged Richmond. If you enjoyed the first, the second is equally , if not even more, enjoyable!
