FRIDAY, MAY 10, 7 PM

TJ TURNER will introduce Angel in the Fog. His novel introduces us to Molly Ferguson who has been enslaved in a Baltimore brothel. Amidst the threat of the Civil War, Molly learns of secessionist plans to assassinate President-elect Abraham Lincoln as he makes his way to Washington for his inauguration. She manages to pass this information on to a Pinkerton agent posing as a client.

Impressed with her fortitude and intelligence, the Pinkerton Agency secures her freedom and brings her under the tutelage of America's first female detective. It is in this capacity that she unravels a sinister plan that would have doomed the Union and allowed the Confederacy to win the Civil War.

TJ Turner is an award-winning novelist, an historian, a research scientist, and a Federal Agent. He served three tours in Afghanistan and was twice awarded the Bronze Star Medal (2013 and 2017). He has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and Material Science from Cornell University. His previous novels are Lincoln's Bodyguard and Land of Wolves.
