Faded Coat of Blue by Owen Parry is our selection for July.
Set in Washington, D.C., in 1861, Captain Abel Jones -- a Welshman late of Queen Victoria's service -- is assigned by General George McClellan to investigate the murder of a young abolitionist officer. While probing the crime, Jones uncovers corruption, graft, drugs, and illicit sex, and he is eventually ordered off the case.
