Augustus Cain has his back against the wall. A war-scarred wanderer, he faces a past he wants to forget, a present without prospect or fortune and an uncertain future, reliant upon his one skill: an uncanny ability to track people who don't want to be found. With the clouds of civil war gathering, a plantation owner has called in a debt and Cain is forced to head north from Richmond and retrieve a runaway slave named Rosetta, on the promise that his creditor will not only clear his debt, but pay him as well.Running Rosetta to ground in Boston, Cain discovers she carries a secret, and the size of the bounty on her head begins to make more sense. Fleeing the northern states pursued by a posse of unionists lead by John Brown, Cain finds himself increasingly drawn to Rosetta and starts to wonder if his five hundred dollar fee - if any fee - could ever be enough to return her to her master.
