First edition. As new, unread copy in dust jacket. Third book in the series. "It is spring of 1862 as the war escalates and troops move in for battle. But in Richmond, an even greater threat looms: smallpox. As Narcissa, Judah, and their friend, the British journalist Brit Wallace, soon suspect, this is more than microbial contagion. It is a deadly crime, a plague intentionally planted on 'tainted' money, and they must race to halt a killer more lethal than the cannons on the blood-soaked fields of combat."
