Seven for A SecretStreaming Audiobook - 2013
Six months after the formation of the NYPD, its most reluctant and talented officer, Timothy Wilde, thinks himself well versed in his city's dark practices - until he learns of the gruesome underworld ruled by the "blackbirders, " who snatch free Northerners of color, masquerade them as slaves, and sell them South to toil as plantation property. But in 1846, slave catching isn't just legal - it's law enforcement. When the beautiful and terrified Lucy Adams staggers into Timothy's office to report a robbery and is asked what was stolen, her reply is, "My family." Their search for her mixed-race sister and son will plunge Timothy and his feral brother, Valentine, into a world where police are complicit and politics savage, and corpses appear in the most shocking of places.
