Publisher's Summary

Joshua Speed, the enterprising second son of a wealthy plantation owner, has struck off on his own. But before long he makes a surprising and crucial new acquaintance - a freshly minted lawyer by the name of Abraham Lincoln.

When an orphaned girl from a neighboring town is found murdered and suspicion falls on her aunt, Speed makes it his mission to clear her good name. Of course he'll need the legal expertise of his unusual new friend. Together Lincoln and Speed fight to bring justice to their small town. But as more bodies are discovered and the investigation starts to come apart at the seams, there's one question on everyone's lips: Does Lincoln have what it takes to crack his first murder case?

Inspired by actual events from the American frontier, Jonathan Putnam's thrilling debut, These Honored Dead, brings a verve and vigor to the historical mystery genre that listeners haven't seen since Caleb Carr's The Alienist.

What a Great Story!

This story kept me guessing and wondering and interested until the very end. I couldn’t wait to get back to it during each interruption. I really enjoyed the different voices that the narrator used as he told the story. They added another huge dimension to an already terrific tale. I am so looking forward to the next book. I do hope the author doesn’t stop at three.
