Hawkshaws latest assignment: to find a missing military regiment and their commander. How can a regiment go missing? Hawkshaw immediately sets out to discover the answer. Following a trail of suicide, murder and the death of his friend, he uncovers a diabolical plot to re-ignite the flames of war and throw the nation into chaos yet again. Hawkshaw must use all his powers of detection and every ounce of his courage if he is to save the Republic, stave off an attack on San Francisco...and prevent the assassination of president Ulysses S.

A real treat for history fans and mystery lovers alike.
