A Season of Death In Washington, D.C., President Lincoln has just been assassinated and the city is reeling with suspicion, fear, and confusion. But for fourteen-year-old Emily, the Union's turmoil is nothing compared to her own dire struggles. After her mother's untimely death, she is sent to live with her mysterious uncle Valentine, a doctor with some very creepy associates. Emily's grief is compounded when one of her best friend's parents is accused of being an accomplice of John Wilkes Booth, Lincoln's murderer. Worse still, on the night of her mother's burial, Emily realizes her uncle is involved in what may be an even uglier business, one that she cannot ignore if she is to be true to herself and her mother's memory.
