Summary

A copperhead is a turncoat, a northerner who sympathises with the South. Captain Nate Starbuck, forced out of his beloved Legion by the enmity of its founder, General Washington Faulconer, becomes caught up in dangerous double game of espionage.

He is given no choice but to travel from a prison cell in Richmond, Virginia, to the secret centre of the high Northern command in a desperate attempt to thwart Yankee strategy which threatens to overwhelm the South.

Starbuck plays a difficult and complex game of bluff and betrayal in a winner-takes-all effort to save his own life and return to the Legion, but at a high cost to his personal and professional loyalties as a friend and a man of war.

Copperhead

Wanders about a bit. The reader's voice is boring and therefore my mind kept wandering away from the book.
