While investigating her nightmarish vision of a notorious Civil War prison camp, Nuala Anne McGrail and her boyfriend, Dermot Michael Coyne, find their courtship interrupted by corrupt politicians, a gang of art thieves, and international terrorists

Blackwell North Amer
Fresh from solving the mystery of who killed Michael Collins in Irish Gold, Dermot Michael Coyne and Nuala Anne McGrail are reunited in Chicago, where Nuala has moved to make a new life for herself. An accountant by day, she sings in a local pub at night with dreams of making it big. The way her Celtic beauty and charm enchant everyone who meets her, she seems sure to succeed. The most enchanted of all is her faithful protector and would-be suitor, Dermot, who compares Nuala to Irish lace - "thin and delicate and pretty, and just a little bit complicated."
But their unique courtship is once again to be interrupted due to one of Nuala's "spells." Nuala is fey, as they say in the Old Country, and she occasionally has visions from the past. This time, while driving down Lake Shore Drive, she is overwhelmed by the screams of thousands of dying men even though the surrounding cities seem perfectly calm. Dermot knows from past experience that the two of them will soon be caught up in another unsolved mystery from the past and maybe the present, too.
At Nuala's request he begins investigating the history of the area and discovers that it was the site of the most notorious Union prison camp of the Civil War - Camp Douglas. He also discovers conflicting records surrounding the plot to free Confederate prisoners from Camp Douglas and burn Chicago to the ground.
Nuala feels the pain of tormented souls who want the truth to finally come out, but their investigation turns into much more than an academic exercise when Nuala is pursued by alleged members of the IRA and is arrested as an art thief. Dermot can protect her from the thugs, but what can he do against a corrupt and uncaring bureaucracy threatening to ship his love back to Ireland?
