Everyone thought those who died on the Antietam Battlefield did so more than 150 years ago, that is until Norma Bergen, a prickly, stubborn, but otherwise loveable lawyer-between-jobs, stumbles onto someone new. When her teenage daughter realizes the person who died was her close friend, she falls into an alarming depression, driving Norma to bring the killer to justice. Norma’s husband wants to help, in between boarding, training, and instructing on their new horse farm, but no one can help Norma when she faces an unexpected, devastating loss. Last Casualty, the second murder mystery in the Norma Bergen series and delivers all the humor, heartache, and triumph of real life.
