Karen Abbott

Karen Abbott's forthcoming book Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy tells the true story of four daring (and not entirely scrupulous) Civil War spies who risked everything for their cause, and will be published by Harper Collins on September 2. Abbott's previous books, Sin in the Second City and American Rose, were both New York Times bestsellers. She is a featured contributor to the Smithsonian magazine and also writes for Disunion, the New York Times series about the Civil War.
