It's 1882 and Oliver Redcastle, an ex-Pinkerton detective and a former Union Army sharpshooter, has inherited a house in Baltimore and a new daughter. Oliver dreams of putting his violent past behind him. When John D. Rockefeller forces him to investigate a railway explosion Oliver finds himself plunged into mayhem once again. The plot thickens when a Civil War encampment in the city digs up old betrayals, triggers death and breeds a fresh murder plot that Oliver must foil to prevent his future from becoming as bloody as his past.
Cassiano's Antichita Diverse album survives almost intact in the Royal Library at Windsor Castle. It is a compendium of pen-and-wash drawings of Roman antiquities, including jewellery, amulets, weights and measures, vases and lamps, tripods, statuettes and reliefs. Many of the drawings record the collection in which the objects were then to be found, for they were the subject of much antiquarian study and debate in the early seventeenth century.
