This Civil War history traces two movements; one a desperate manhunt and the other, a stately, cross-country funereal process. An unforgettable story, well-told by a respected historian. In early April 1865, Confederate president Jefferson Davis received the telegram that he had been dreading: Robert E. Lee's armies could no longer hold back the Union attack. Left with no options, Davis packed quickly and fled Richmond on a midnight train. Now a wanted man, he began a desperate race south, attempting to outrun his pursuers.

Very helpful reference if you want to branch out and try new mystery authors (women). Books are cross-indexed by locale of story, type of sleuth, etc. (E.G. if you like mysteries that take place, say, in the South, or if you like lawyer-sleuths, you can check the indexes in the back.)Also, the blurb on your favorite author gives suggestions as to similar authors you may not have read yet. Superb if you're not surrounded by friends who don't like mysteries who can recommend their faves.

I have completely lost count of how many wonderful new authors I have discovered through this reference book. I love the fact that the authors don't give their opinions of each writer, instead leaving the reader to decide for themselves what themes and styles appeal to her. Very helpful, too, that they give the order of the first few of the authors works. A very worthwhile purchase!
