Sinossi

“I curse you Once, twice, thrice!”



The malevolent spectre of death had been unleashed upon the unsuspecting souls of Stormouth. Those destined to become its disciples waited in fear to taste its foul breath. Reverent Bayles had been seduced by the devil, had tasted its vileness and had a victim of his own in mind. Who then would feel the dark angels touch next? Could anyone avoid its progress?

Stormouth hid many secrets, which men like Joseph Wood desired to keep hidden. Secrets though have a tendency of becoming common knowledge. Burdened by her own desperation Abigail Wood discovers the immoralities hidden beneath the aura of respectability. A story of myriad twists and turns sees Abigail discover, hidden in the depths of depravity, the truth behind the towns success.

DEAD MEN LIE BY DAVID PROCTOR

This is a book with everything - romance, adventure, murder, many evil crimes and so much more.

The story begins in Boston in 1769 with a hanging which starts a chain of events, which will keep the reader turning the pages. Samuel Worthington failed to save the boy who was hanged and is guilt ridden and unhappy with the way the country is governed, He joins a group who want self-government and a pact is made. His actions lead us on to Stormouth in England.

What happens there starts with Abigail Wood attending her father-in-laws funeral. Joseph Wood was the head of a rich and powerful family. However all is not as it should be in the Wood family. The reading of Joseph's will brings much horror and grief to Abigail. What will be her fate? How will she cope with her husband reported lost at sea?

There is Edward Bayles the priest who was friends with Joseph Wood and is unbelievably wicked and controls the town, getting rich in the process. He has many secrets and wants to be rid of Abigail. Will he achieve his aim?

Then we have Benjamin Turnbottle who secretly plots ruin for the Wood family but offers help and friendship to Abigail when she needs it most, but is he to be trusted? Who are Abigail's true friends? What happens when the military arrive in Stormouth? You will have to read this to find out.

There is much intrigue with twists and turns round every corner. There are many layers and as one is peeled back so another is revealed. This is a fast moving tale that will keep the reader engrossed to the end A very enjoyable book indeed.
It certainly deserves five stars.

More often than not, I don't seek out the historical fiction genre because, in so many cases, I've perceived it as amounting to no more than "bodice-ripping" in period costume. That's why Dead Men Lie by David Procter came as such a pleasant surprise. Painstakingly researched, relentlessly suspenseful and abundantly layered with intrigues, this book holds readers spellbound by its depiction of political, commercial, and societal corruption in an 18th-century English town. The sheer energy that Mr. Procter must have expended in crafting this tale is awe-inspiring--and results in a work more than slightly reminiscent of Daphne du Maurier. A must-read!

First of all, I must say the cover of this book is totally misleading because the story is historical fiction - very well-researched pre-USA Independence historical fiction set in America and old England. Proctor has obviously taken pains to get his facts right, although it was a little confusing as to whether the English 'priest' was a Catholic priest or an Anglican vicar - at one point he is referred to as a 'reverent' (sic). Not that it made much difference because the man himself is vile rotter. Proctor is good at writing unpleasant people - and many in this curous, unpredictable novel are very unpleasant indeed. Sorting the good from the downright evil was not easy because Proctor sets narrative traps; just when it seems the plot and plotting is becoming clear, there's a surprise. Even the heroine becomes questionable - what are her motives? Ultimately, this is a complex story of sins and sinners: a novel for those whose enjoy historical mysteries and the more sinister of Dickensian casts.

"Dead Men Lie" by David Procter is a well researched, historically accurate and impressive novel set in Boston and England in the late 1700s. It is a thriller, a mystery novel, a romance and historical fiction and a rich and rewarding read.
The books starts with a dramatic scene, the description of a gruesome hanging in Boston in 1969 as perceived by the lawyer of the hanged man. There is more to the case than meets the eye and this has a profound effect on the lawyer.
The story then moves on to Stormouth in England and the Wood family. Abigail, whose husband is missing and declared dead, the reading of the will, the priest and the dubious Benjamin Turnbottle, a 'friend'.
The plot is cleverly woven and told with a confident voice and with lots of surprises. The characters are diverse and colourful and their stories are intriguing and reflect English society of the times with all its flaws and some of its joy.
Pre-revolutionary America and Georgian England are a well chosen setting for the story.
Enjoyable, educational and gripping.
