Nate Starbuck has left his upright Boston family and joined the Confederate cause in the Civil War. A talented soldier, he’s entered the world of espionage, betraying his brother’s trust in the bargain. Ed Sala offers a no-nonsense, no-frills performance of this historically correct fiction. His gritty, unemotional portrayal of the horrors of war blends perfectly with his characterizations of Northern and Southern soldiers, whores and preachers. While each carries enough distinction in tone to easily identify, none is exaggerated or enlivened. Sala tells the story well, without overperforming.
