Adult Fiction HAMBLY
Summary: It's November 1834, and a shadow emerges from Benjamin January's past: Simon Fourchet, the savagely angry man to whom Ben was bound in slavery until the age of seven. Fourchet desperately needs January's help: He wants January to pose as a field hand to spy out who and what lies behind a chain of sinister happenings on Mon Triomphe, Fourchet's upriver plantation. On All Souls' night, at the dark of the moon, a fire destroyed the sugar mill. The field gang's food has been poisoned; a servant has been murdered. Is this the mark of one determined killer? Or the beginning of a slave rebellion that will bathe Louisiana in blood? Benjamin January must find the deadly answer before his own identity is uncovered or he is sold down the river -- into lifelong slavery.
