Carolyn Hart’s latest novel tells the story of the descendants of the Dead Yankees, the military unit of Hessian mercenaries who fought for the British during the American Revolution.
As the novel opens, members of the Dead Yankees’ descendants are gathered in East Tennessee to commemorate their ancestor, General James Wolfe, who was killed in 1759 at the Battle of Quebec. While the gathering is meant to be a peaceful and healing event, the descendants’ unresolved anger and grief over the losses and betrayals of the past continue to fester.
As the descendants begin to unravel the mysteries of Wolfe’s life and death, they are drawn into a complex and dangerous game of politics, espionage, and battles with French and American forces. Yankee Doodle Dead is a riveting historical mystery that will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very end.; A Death on Demand Mystery; 8vo; 273 pages; Signed by Author.
