Pale Ghost

(A book in the Joseph Fisher Colonial Mystery series)
A novel by

Amid the flames of frontier war, one man spies murder... 1703 New England is ravaged by flintlock and tomahawk. Mohawk warriors and French Marines kill, loot, and burn, then drag captives away to slavery and torture. Yet Joseph Fisher tracks an evil worse than war. For a murderer has used the raids to cover a trail of butchery and betrayal. Travelers vanish, soldiers muster, fanatics rail, and pirates ply the waves. Even dead men walk as a killer strikes again and again. Raised by Indians, schooled by Jesuits, trained by Puritans, Joseph is a man of three worlds who belongs to none. Condemned by society and crippled by consumption, his only weapons are an iron will and a keen mind. "Let justice be done, though the heavens fall." No one will stop Joseph from digging up the truth. "When it comes to creating an authentic atmosphere for the historical mystery, Clayton Emery ranks with the best in the genre." Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine
