MacPherson's Lament

Down South the Civil War isn't something you learn about in school. It's a chilling presence that hasn't quite passed into history. Forensic anthropologist Elizabeth MacPherson feels its pull when she ventures to Danville, Virginia, to save her brother Bill - a novice lawyer - from a charge that could send him to prison.

It will fall to Elizabeth to follow a twisted trail of bitterness and resentment - one that leads to a Civil War secret that may be the key to the ugly truth....
