Imagine if you will, an America where Abraham Lincoln never became president.  And that slavery was not illegal.  That is the what Winters is imagining in this alternative history fiction.  Lincoln was assassinated on his way to his inaugural and even in 2016, slavery is not illegal.  Sure most states have voted to be free states but there are still four states that allow slavery.  How would this change the course of our history?  Would our position in the world be changed?  In this story, a young African American former slave is now a bounty hunter paid to bring runaways back to their owners.  He is on the trail of an escaped slave and those who help them. Can he find his quarry?  And maybe bring down a link in the underground airline
