Descrizione prodotto


“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.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Riveting Read 24 aprile 2013
Di Ann Stanmore - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle

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.

3.0 su 5 stelle Period-Rich Detail for History Buffs 9 agosto 2013
Di Jennifer Wiltz - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
This book opens with a hanging that grabs the reader's attention right away. Set in the 13 colonies, solicitor Samuel Worthington watches the hanging of a client he couldn't save--a client who merely tried to protect his mother from British soldiers.

From there, Worthington is drawn into the anti-British intrigue of the period. The action shifts to England and a town called Stormouth, where young Abigail Woods must find allies and face off against a family who has essentially disowned her. Spies, commerce, revolution,and family intrigue abound as the characters interact on both sides of the ocean.

The period-rich detail in language and setting show how hard the author worked to bring colonial America alive. These characters inhabit their world fully. You can really feel these are people of the times, not modern characters transposed into the past. It's obvious the author did his homework.

Now, a brief word about the editing. There are quite a few mistakes in punctuation and grammar. Oddly enough, it's relatively easy to skip over these when reading. Still, the book could use the eye of an experienced editor to bring it up to industry standards.

Overall, the hard work the author did with the setting makes it worth a read.

4.0 su 5 stelle Many-Layered Intrigue 31 luglio 2013
Di Incorrigible - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
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!

4.0 su 5 stelle Intriguing 2 luglio 2013
Di K. Meador - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
As always, I love to read books from authors who are across this great big divide we affectionately call a pond. This book was no exception.

Dead Men Lie is an intricately woven tale of greed, power, evil and control. But it is also more. It holds suspense, intrigue, evokes sympathy and heroes come out in a fashion you wouldn't think.

I don't want to go into too much detail because I certainly wouldn't want to spoil the story for you but if you are looking for a fast pace, suspenseful novel with intriguing characters this is a must read for you. I clearly enjoyed it.
