Ben Bones #5
The Uncivil War

(Currently in development)

 

In which, the protagonist, one Benjamin S. Bones,
Professional Genealogist and Articulator of Family Skeletons,
is hired by descendants of a Confederate soldier
to find and claim great-great-grandpa's Civil War pension money.

Of course, it's not as simple as it sounds.
As it turns out, the Virginia family suspects,
but doesn't know for sure,
about the soldier's treachery which resulted in a Union victory.

Twin sisters are locked in battle, when...
that's right, a descendant of great-great-grandpa's
missing brother shows up from Tennessee
with his own story of treachery to The Cause to tell.

Poor Ben is in the middle once again, caught between
the family's greed and their need for secrecy.
