Summoned by a Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, law firm, aimless Dock Bass learns that he’s inherited an ancient house from a deceased relative whom he never knew existed. Renovating the home, Dock stumbles upon a treasure trove of Civil War memorabilia squirreled away in an old root cellar, including pictures and possibly even a recording of Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg. As he’s forced to defend his new find from the onslaught of collectors, history buffs, and media hounds, Dock discovers that, much like Honest Abe himself, he’s the right man for the fight--independent, funny, loyal, and stubborn as a Missouri mule. When the scallywags and opportunists--including an easy-on-the-eyes television reporter with one hell of an attitude--start crawling out of the woodwork, he’ll need all of that and a bit more.

Praise for Busted Flush

“Done with wit and skill and grace.”--Donald Westlake, The Washington Post Book World

“With dialogue that crackles like musket fire, Brad Smith’s novel is true to Gettysburg’s heroic past and madcap present, and a deliciously entertaining tale of uncivil war of the legacy of America’s greatest conflict.”--Tony Horwitz, author of Confederates in the Attic

“Hugely enjoyable.”--Michael Redhill, The Globe & Mail (Toronto)

“[A] witty new satire.”--The Denver Post

“A tight, lively package, assembled with conviction and genuine suspense.”--The Toronto Star

“[A] funny, quirky tale that plays pleasing what-if games with the past . . . Nicely done, and just the thing for the History Channel addict of the house.”--Kirkus Reviews
