When the first page of a shocking Civil War - era document is unearthed in Oklahoma, history professor Nick Journey is called in to evaluate the find - and is promptly attacked by two men armed with Special Forces weapons. Federal agent Meg Tolman's investigation into Journey's attack uncovers more troubling questions than answers.

A shadowy group, the Glory Warriors, have been desperately searching for this explosive document to legitimize what is nothing less than a military coup. After their first attempt to steal it from Journey fails, they follow him, knowing that he holds the key to uncovering the long-lost papers.

And the Glory Warrior operatives are hot on their trail...show more

Review quote

"The past comes excitingly to life in this very modern, very white-knuckle thriller. From the Civil War to today's national politics, "Cold Glory" bristles with great characters, fascinating research, and a story that will propel you to the last page with the velocity of a hollow-point bullet." -- Gayle Lynds, "New York Times "bestselling author of "The Book of Spies" ""Cold Glory" kept me engaged, actually totally absorbed, from page one. Nicely drawn characters with real personal issues, a truckload of action, a goodly number of surprises and a satisfying ending that made you hope that all things in real life could work out this well." --David Hagberg, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Cabal" "A genuinely unique take on the tectonic and dangerous forces that lie beneath the American landscape, written by a man in full command of the page. Never vulgar, always poised, often intellectually and historically surprising, "Cold Glory" is a deeply satisfying read." --David Stone, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Echelon Vendetta" ""Cold Glory" grabs the reader from the first chapter and doesn't let go. With inspired characters, a mystery dating back to the civil war, and an insidious plot against America, Anderson has crafted a thriller that will keep you turning the pages late into the night." --Boyd Morrison, bestselling author of "The Ark"show more
