In defiance of the local priest, a stubborn investigator opens the killer's grave -- and finds the corpse of a young woman many weeks dead, whose identity lies shrouded in the struggle for Ireland's freedom.
From a windswept graveyard to the killing fields of Fredericksburg, Major Abel Jones battles the multiple layers of deceit surrounding the death of a general who lied about his own name.

Yet, as he confronts superstition, wartime corruption, ancient hatreds, and remorseless violence, Jones remains determined to honor justice -- whatever the cost..."
