About the Book

Casualties are mounting when a murder calls widow Narcissa Powers and herbalist Judah Daniel, a former slave, away from tending to wounded soldiers. A colonel on leave comes home to find his family butchered and his servants clutching knives and raving about spirits, but the weapons don't match the wounds. Are rebellious slaves to blame for this crime, or could it be the work of an avenging angel? Aided by their friend, the British journalist, Brit Wallace, Narcissa and Judah investigate. When another murder makes Judah a prime suspect, finding the killer becomes frighteningly urgent. Set against a fascinating historical background and graced with richly developed characters, Angel Trumpet proves that McMillan is a writer to whom any reader will come back again and again.
