    1. This book kept me reading even though it was nightmarishly graphic and often unrealistic. Overall I think the historical aspects have been portrayed accurately. Joseph Hooker, especially, is portrayed realistically. Personally, I don't think Lincoln made "mistakes" in appointing generals. I think he simply didn't have good options early on. Kit's superhuman feats are too much. Maybe the most unbelievable thing for me was that Kit at twenty-one and during war time could have still been a virgin. [...]


    2. The first half of this book is long and boring. Nothing really happens until the middle of the book. It gets better, but fraud in military procurement? Could you have picked a more boring plot? Then the epilogue seems like it should be part of an entirely different book. I recommend skipping it.


    3. I am not usually a mystery book reader, but I was recommended this book and I love history I thought I would give it a read. Right off the bat I have to say that I really liked the style that this book was written in. It doesn't start out like a detective story, and it never really feels too much like a hard boiled mystery. The mystery plays a part in creating the atmosphere of a historical fiction set during the Civil War. Our narrator, Kit, has played his part in the early battles but has ende [...]


    4. (Audible; Patrick G. Lawlor, narrator) This is excellent historical fiction about the narrator's experiences in the Union Army during the Civil War, a war I generally avoid reading about unless Abraham Lincoln figures large. The background fabric is Lincoln's inability to find a decent general to lead the Army of the Potomac. The narrator, Kit, badly injured in a battle, becomes an opium addict, and this addiction--feeding it and treating it--is one of the plots. He becomes an investigator in th [...]


    5. I loved it! It was fast paced, lots of actions, there was some crime solving. The characters! Val, Hathaway, Hooker, Amelie I loved them all, they were all interesting! I thought I wouldn't enjoy this since it's a civil war book, but I enjoyed it. The parts when Kit had to go through physical ordeals, I liked the description it felt like I was there and seeing it happen. I loved the epilogue!


    6. This novel should be regarded with the highest praise and honors from a elementary school writing competion. The characters and situations are "novel-y" and unbelievable. Skip it.



    7. THe audio version of this book was excellent. I kept listening non-stop. What a great way to learn history. The story of corruption during the Civil War was fascinating. Sadly, little has changed.


    8. Civil war fiction is probably my favorite genre. I have met this author; he's married to a friend of mine. Also wrote "Stonewall's Gold."


    9. I did not enjoy this book very much. It had a good plot but I just dont like mystery books. I would not rate this book very high.


    10. Another great Civil War story, examines Yankee soldiering, dangers presented from friendly troops as it applies to Yankee racism, war profiteering, prostitution. Well worth your time.
