Publisher's Summary

When an old man sees an unidentified Civil War photograph of a woman in the newspaper, he begins a desperate search for a 160-year-old painting that he believes will match the image of the enigmatic woman in the photograph, and if it does, it will prove that his great-great-grandfather did not run from battle. After the old man hires Sean O’Brien to find the mysterious painting, O’Brien discovers it’s linked to a secret letter and map that will lead to a trapdoor where a hidden key to the most horrific war on US soil lies buried in mud at the bottom of a river. It's also linked to a new murder, and there are those who will stop at nothing to keep the information hidden because to bring it to the surface will rewrite American history.

Excellent suspense mystery!

Black River is the 6th novel in the 8 book Sean O'Brien mystery/thriller series by Tom Lowe. This is my 7th review of novels in the series. Sean O'Brien is a 40ish ex-Miami homicide cop who retired when his wife died of ovarian cancer. He is supposedly a commercial fisherman but his real work is as a private detective. This novel concerns murders related to US Civil War memorabilia. In Black River and other novels in the series author Tom Lowe does a great job of building suspense and folding in plot twists certain to surprise the listener. Narration is superb.

Great story. Amazing narration!

I really enjoyed the depth of this book's historical detail. Mostly, though, the narration is so good that I feel like these characters are truly enhanced by the different inflections and accents. I laugh out loud quite often, and look forward to the audio book. Thanks!
