Thumbs up A Great New Find

I just discovered Owen Parry. He has a series, I think 5 or 6 novels, featuring the character 'Abel Jones'.
Any U.S. History buffs would enjoy these works.
Historical Fiction anyone?
These are murder mysteries set during the Civil War ( or as my relatives in Tennessee call it " the War of Northern Aggression" ).
The author seems to have a grasp on the language and Victorian culture of the time.

Hm, I don't think I have ever heard of him, but the name sounds really familiar. I'm a big history buff in general, so I'll look into these.
