Dead Men Lie
by David T Proctor

Lies, spies and deceit hold a town in fear.

Stormouth lies upon the coast, a town where genteel people desire to life in solitude and quiet reflection but their peace is about to be destroyed. Set against the backdrop of an impending revolution in the colonies Dead Men Lie is centred around a lie told and the repercussions of that lie. The ramifications threaten to bring down not only a woman but an entire social structure.

Abigail Wood has been vilified by a dead man who through his will threatens to destroy her, his plan is aided by a vile and vicious priest who has his own evil agenda. Add into this mix a Colonial spy, two regiments one of whom is attempting to leave England and join the rebels and a Kings Birthday and Stormouth for a brief moment in time becomes the very centre of intrigue and denial.
