Carroll & Graf, 2004, 25.00, 325 pp.
University of Georgia professor Jay Pope-Scott, whose Dixie theories on race has angered the world outside of a few white supremacists, believes his cousin stole the "Bloody Red Rag" from him. This legendary Confederate flag supposedly stopped the flow of blood from dying Stonewall Jackson. Jay asks research expert Top Kiernan to regain his valuable possession. Top would prefer to refuse his client, but he takes on the job because Top has competition now. His former lover and ex partner Gillie Lynfield is stealing his customers and has even lured away some of his better talent.
Top and associates investigates the stolen flag by visiting Confederate supporter collectors throughout the region; especially concentrating on those, who could not care less about ownership as possession is ten tenths of a collection. However, the Klan, other white supremacy groups, abortion bombers, and even law enforcement want to attack Top.
