O'Dell, Claire  
Janet Watson & Sara Holmes #1: A Study in Honor
A sniper's bullet during the New Civil War cost surgeon Dr. Janet Watson her arm and her career. She is looking for work and decent housing in Washington, DC, when another Black woman, covert operative Sara Holmes, offers her a place to stay. When Watson discovers that soldiers from a particular unit are dying one by one, the two women join forces to investigate.

Recommended by Elizabeth: Near-future sf with excellent disability representation, and I enjoyed the characterizations enough to forgive the fact that I saw the major plot twist coming a mile away.
