"Boggs is among the best Western writers at work today. He writes with depth, flavor, and color." Booklist

"Boggs' narrative voice captures the old-fashioned style of the past." Publishers Weekly


Against the backdrop of the War for Independence, two intriguing storylines emerge. Stuart Brodie is a black freedman from Charles Town who owns a tavern in the backcountry of South Carolina. On his return from the war, he finds his younger brother, Ezekiel, hanging from the limb of a tree, his tavern burned to the ground, and a note warning any passerby that this is what lies in store for all Tories. Knowing that the guilty party was allied with the Colonial Patriots, Brodie decides to join the British Army under the command of Major Patrick Ferguson to exact his revenge.

Marty McKidrict, born Martha Anne Sinclair, is often abused by her drunk husband, Sebastian McKidrict. One day, she is raped by him and his friend, and left to recover alone. While dressed in men's clothing, Marty is mistaken for Sebastian by a recruiter for the Patriots' army, and promptly uses this to her advantage to join the colonial forces and escape.

Meanwhile, the Patriots are gathering backcountry fighters for an open confrontation with the British troops under Major Patrick Ferguson. This Ghost Legion is growing steadily, and because the British do not believe the legion exists or refuse to acknowledge their strength, a bloody conflict looms on the horizon.
