About the Book
Hattie Lawton was a young Pinkerton detective who with her partner, Timothy Webster, spied for the U.S. Secret Service during the Civil War. Working deep cover in Richmond, the two posed as husband and wife. A dazzling blonde from New York and a handsome Englishman, both with checkered pasts, they were matched in charm, cunning and duplicity and recklessly bold.
Fully aware that capture meant execution, they survived numerous perils, operating on nerve and a studied grasp of human behavior. Their mission came to an end when, betrayed by their own spymaster, Allan Pinkerton, they fell into the hands of the dictator of Richmond, the notorious General John H. “Hog” Winder.
