The Counterfeit Twin
The Socrates Cheng Mysteries

No Safe Place

When Socrates Cheng is hired by a Civil War museum to investigate a burglary and to recover stolen documents, he comes face-to-face with the most perilous and controversial investigation of his career as he learns that the documents contain an explosive and deadly secret: that revered Confederate General Robert E. Lee was born a black slave who passed for white.

Pressed hard by the museum to recover the documents before their incendiary content becomes public, and suspected by homicide cops of having committed murder in the course of his investigation, Socrates races to protect the museum’s most closely guarded secret and to establish his own innocence.

The Counterfeit Twin marries the suspense of an intricate murder mystery with glimpses into Civil War history, southern-plantation slave life, and the strange behavior of modern-day Civil War reenactors.

What if the president of the United States authorized a secret biological weapon attack against an American city as part of a homeland security experiment intended to provide the government with real-time information showing how people will react after an actual terrorist’s bioweapon attack?

And what if you and your family happen to be vacationing in the target city when that government experiment occurred?

That’s the situation ex-Navy SEAL Trace Austin and his family find themselves in when they go on vacation to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and are trapped behind barbed wire, subject to quarantine and martial law.
