Having miraculously survived a stomach wound early in the Civil War, young Union officer John "Kit" McKittredge is assigned to investigate corruption in the Union Army. The murder of a young woman leads him into a conspiracy that could topple the Union while putting both his career and his life in danger. Patrick Lawlor captures the youth and inexperience of McKittredge and also conveys the weariness of the older officers. Women's voices are effective, including those with French accents. Lawlor's pacing and energy, coupled with the suspense and character interest of the story, result in a satisfying production. M.A.M. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
