Roy Hill married the girl of his dreams, dotes on his eleven-year-old son, and is next in line for a big promotion in the Atlanta office of a global corporation. Then, almost imperceptibly, it all starts to unravel. A chance encounter with a group of Civil War reenactors sends him down a new, devastating path where the lines between fantasy and reality will blur, blanks will be replaced by bullets, and a bloody history will live again. An extraordinary story about the fate of men and women no longer in step with the rhythms of the modern world, as they march back into Southern history to make things right, "Last of the Dixie Heroes" is an unforgettable novel of suspense.
