She’s manages to pass this information on to a Pinkerton agent posing as a client. Impressed with her fortitude and intelligence, the Pinkerton Agency arranges for Molly’s freedom and brings her under the tutelage of Mrs. Kate Warne, America’s first female detective. After they save Mr. Lincoln in Baltimore, Molly is sent by the Pinkerton Agency into the Deep South—where the Civil War now rages—a spy behind enemy lines.Molly threads a thin line between revenge and redemption as she races to unravel a sinister plan that will doom the Union and allow the Confederacy to win the Civil War—while coming face to face with the demons from her tragic past.

Reviews

“Superb historical fiction with a wonderful and inspiring main character in Molly Ferguson. Very highly recommended.”—Lee Child, New York Times best-selling author“Suspenseful and rich with historical detail, Angel in the Fog by TJ Turner brings the Civil War to fire-breathing life. A young prostitute’s discovery of a conspiracy to murder president-elect Abraham Lincoln sets her on a daring path to help the Pinkerton agency save the president’s life, and soon she becomes one of America’s first female private detectives. This is a grand yarn that will rivet you to your reading chair.”—Gayle Lynds, New York Times best-selling author“In TJ Turner's Angel in the Fog, we're in for a heart-stopping, page-turning, and thrilling story as we follow the exploits of Molly—a feisty, fascinating, and fierce heroine if ever there was one. But there's more to Molly's story than excitement. It's an insightful exploration of the resourcefulness of the human heart when tested by the most difficult of circumstances—and, ultimately, the redemptive power of forgiveness.”—Jess Montgomery author of The WidowsPraise for the Lincoln's Bodyguard series:“A wonderfully imagined world of 'what might have been, if only.’ The chemistry between the characters sparkles, the treachery comes from all directions, and the story moves with a wry, appealing voice. It’s one delicious tale."—Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author“…the story is almost cinematic in its construction and execution. Terrific fun and perfect reading for fans of alternate-history adventures.”—Booklist“Riveting with action and period detail, Lincoln's Bodyguard by TJ Turner captured me on the first page. From President Abraham Lincoln to security specialist Allan Pinkerton, history comes to fire-breathing life in this tale of treachery and and honor, politics and war. Turner is an exciting new voice.”—Gayle Lynds, New York Times best-selling author“War, politics, love, and betrayal combine in a riveting tale that upends history and imagines the America that might have been. Just when you settle into the new post-Civil War order in Lincoln's Bodyguard, TJ Turner delivers plot twists that make the story unstoppable, culminating in an ending no one will see coming.”—Bob Mayer, New York Times best-selling author “Land of Wolves is an inherently fascinating, compelling, and fully entertaining read from cover to cover.”—Midwest Book Review“Land of Wolves is a story of family, of loyalty, of duty, and of revenge, and it delivers on each of those elements very effectively.”—Manhattan Book Review“Wow, what an interesting twist on historical events! This story is a page-turner, so expect to lose track of time while reading!” —InD’Tale Magazine - -
