Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380800675, Mass Market Paperback)"In 1871, a nation shattered by bloody war and divided by race needs to be born again. And so does Civil War veteran and Philadelphia policeman Wilton McCleary. Still bearing the scars of his past, McCleary is fighting for his future and his soul. But now an investigation has plunged him into a realm of sadism, murder, and the raising of the dead...
Nine women of color have disappeared from Philadelphia's teeming streets. With a crucial election approaching, some suspect that Democratic forces are out to intimidate new Negro voters. But as McCleary investigates, with a beautiful, highly educated black woman at his side, he finds something even more sinister: both the living "and the dead have been vanishing. Now, with streets exploding in race riots, McCleary faces a rogue cop's madness, a cabal's racism, and a doctor's ambition -- in a case that will force him to face the ultimate human darkness, where victims suffer a fate far worse than death.
