January's mood is desperate when his bank fails in hard times. The white banker hires him to follow Oliver Weems, a bank official who's absconded with $100K in gold and securities--some of which is January's money. Weems is headed north on the steamboat Silver Moon with trunks of the money. Rose and Hannibal go along. Complicating things are two coffles of slaves. Soon Weems is murdered, with too many suspects. This one had too many characters, not including the familiar ones from New Orleans. I found this confusing. The ending was a surprise, though I'd figured out a bit of it, just not how it contributed to the solution. It lost a star for me because of the setting.
