Here is a vividly imagined work of historical fiction that captures the emotional
tenor of post-Civil War America, a brilliantly realized courtroom drama that explores
the always contentious question of the nature of presidential authority, and a galvanizing
story of political suspense.

Stephen L. Carter []

almost thirty years. He is also the author of seven acclaimed works of nonfiction,
and three bestselling novels. He has published dozens of articles in law reviews,

on radio and television. Among his nonfiction books are The Culture of Disbelief:
How American Law and Politics Trivialize Religious Devotion (1993); Civility: Manners,
Morals, and the Etiquette of Democracy (1998); and God's Name in Vain: The Wrongs
and Rights of Religion in Politics (2000). His first novel, The Emperor of Ocean
