Publisher's Summary

Writing under a man's name, Josephine Breaux is the finest reporter at Washington's Morning Clarion. Using her wit and charm, she never fails to get the scoop on the latest Union and Confederate activities. But when a rival paper reveals her true identity, accusations of treason fly. Despite her claims of loyalty to the Union, she is arrested as a spy and traitor.
To Josephine's surprise, she's whisked away to the White House, where she learns that President Lincoln himself wishes to use her cunning and skill for a secret mission in New Orleans that could hasten the end of the war. For Josephine, though, this mission threatens to open old wounds and expose dangerous secrets. In the middle of the most violent conflict the country has ever seen, can one woman overcome the treacherous secrets of her past in order to secure her nation's future?

Excellent US Civil War novel

The protagonist in The Crescent Spy is young journalist Josephine Breaux. Most of the novel, all except the first few chapters, is located in New Orleans where Breaux was a journalist with a local newspaper while also serving as a spy for the US government. The novel ends soon after the fall of New Orleans to Union forces.

Author Michael Wallace does a great job of character development with Breaux. It is a superb historical fiction novel. The narration is very well done.
