A Justice in Time (Synopsis)  Reply with quote  

A synopsis, for comment:

    The Civil War ended in an armistice that was followed by over a century of armed tension. It is now 1968. In the north, civil rights for blacks are a critical issue. In the south, civil rights for Catholics. In Washington DC, one primary light of integration is the appointment of the first black head of the CIA. His first major task comes when his brilliant but naive daughter invents a time machine and uses it. Her purpose: to end racism by making sure that the North wins the war. To do this she intends to assassinate Robert E. Lee. To prevent this, the north needs to send an agent back - but doesn't have enough information about Lee's wartime movements. They request the data from the South, but must reveal the threat before the south will open sealed archives. The souths price is that one of their agents must go as well. Each has an agenda hidden from the other, to make changes such that their side wins the war.

I'm interested in folks' comments on the length and content of the synopsis. I know the story is interesting. Smile But how well does the synopsis convey the story to you? Need to be longer? Shorter?
