Review

"Keith R. Baker in Longshot in Missouri tells a Civil War story from a fresh perspective that will leave the reader wanting more." - James D Best
Review

From the Back Cover

1862 was the year that the US Civil War underwent a major ramping up.People on both sides of the fight were confused, angry, and hesitant.Most believed the 'war' would have already been over.  Very few peoplerealized to what extent the citizenry was being manipulated toparticipate in the country's most dividing event in its history.

In LONGSHOT in MISSOURI, we meet Rob Finn - an Irish immigrant farmerliving in Wisconsin - and follow him through his introduction to thegrueling realities of war within a nation. Rob's unusual talents with arifle have earned him the nickname of Longshot, together withassignments that take him to various places around the western theatreof the war.   It is a physically taxing, emotional journey,  on which he is sometimes surprised by the truths he learns while doing his job as a soldier and a spy.

We also meet Allan Pinkerton, and others ofhis staff, getting a little insight into what the beginnings of military intelligence for the United States government was like in its infancy.
Historical characters interact with our fictional hero; actual events areintertwined with the daily lives and conversations of people in thoserapidly changing times.  Join with Rob as he works to serve and save the things he believes to be of utmost importance, and struggles to sortout those beliefs - the true from the false - in a baffling environment.

What others are saying about LONGSHOT in MISSOURI:

"Excellent read!"

"I really enjoyed the historical details and all the characters."

"My grandfather was from Ireland and I can hear him again when Rob is speaking . Thanks so much!"

"Can't wait to see what happens to Rob, Molly, Jeff and the Shaker people in the next book."

LONGSHOT in MISSOURI is the first book in the LONGSHOT series, which chronicles a rural family as it struggles through the US CIVIL WAR and beyond.
