John Scobell risked everything to escape slavery at the outset of the Civil War. He thought he'd made his way to freedom – until the moment he was recruited and assigned back to the Confederacy as an undercover Union spy.

Can Scobell avoid capture and certain death at the hands of brutal Rebel spy hunters? Will he find the one object that can break the Confederate codes and earn his emancipation? Or will he remain forever in freedom's shadow?

In Freedom's Shadow is based on the heroic true story of John Scobell, an African American slave who escaped bondage at the outset of the Civil War only to return to the Confederacy as a Union spy. Putting a historic yet fresh twist on the espionage thriller, In Freedom's Shadow won a 2024 International Firebird Book Award for African American Fiction and a Spring 2024 PenCraft Award as a Best Book for Historical Fiction.
