The Spy on the Tennessee Walker

(The third book in the Maggie Fiori series)
A novel by

Magazine editor and amateur sleuth Maggie Fiori returns in a "deliciously entertaining" mystery that takes her into her own dark family history (Naomi Hirahara).

San Francisco magazine editor Maggie Fiori is stunned when she receives a package from her Aunt Phoebe containing evidence that her ancestors may have been traitors to the Union during the Civil War. Soon, she and her husband Michael are on the trip to Oxford, Mississippi, to solve the puzzle. Why was her great-great-great grandmother imprisoned for bigamy and espionage? Was she a criminal or a hero? Did she support the Confederates or the Union?

And, more ominously, could the perils of the past still echo for Maggie today?

Combining a contemporary mystery with a carefully researched Civil War setting and nineteenth-century characters, The Spy on the Tennessee Walker "will appeal to historical-fiction readers and Civil War buffs" as well as fans of modern mysteries and historical fiction (Booklist).
