Angus MacKay is a young Scotsman seeking a new life in the American colonies. Eager to please, though lacking self-confidence, he is hired to assist Mason & Dixon on their ground-breaking survey of the American territories of Maryland and Pennsylvania. Tempers still run high after eighty years of skirmishes along that border, including one man’s ongoing battle with the law.
Angus befriends Liam, an Irishman trying to support his small family in the new world. Intrigued by the natives who inhabit this strange wilderness Angus learns more about their culture. But who is that mysterious one-armed man he sees wherever he goes?
Angus’s dreams are shattered when he trips over a dead body, and the local sheriff would like nothing more than to arrest him for the murder! Will his logical mind learn the truth? Will he find acceptance for himself?
A murder mystery set in 18th-century America. Interesting characters abound, each with an agenda, including a rifle-toting minister convinced the natives are responsible. $0.99 on Kindle.
