About the Books
The Smuggler’s Gambit
Port Beaufort, North Carolina — May 1765
Seventeen-year-old Adam Fletcher is no stranger to fist fights, but when he bloodies the nose of Francis Smythe, the obnoxious son of Port Beaufort’s customs agent, the local magistrate offers Adam two choices: jail or an apprenticeship.
Choosing the latter, he soon finds himself bound apprentice to a reclusive old man with a secret, colorful past. Initially, Adam is less than thrilled about his situation, but when he is asked to spy on his new master as a suspected smuggler, he has to decide whether or not he will betray the man… Or will he do whatever is necessary to protect him, possibly putting even his own family at risk?
Captured in the Caribbean
June 1766 – Havana, Cuba
Adam Fletcher begins a life-altering quest when he’s finally able to travel on Emmanuel Rogers’s sloop to help deliver cargo in the West Indies. Not long after the Carolina Gypsy arrives in the bustling port of Havana, Cuba, Adam ventures out on his own to track down a man who he has been told may have information about his father.
His plans are complicated, however, when he ends up being taken hostage by the very men he hired as interpreters.
When his shipmates receive a ransom letter, they launch a desperate search to find him, but meanwhile, Adam plots his own escape from the hands of his captors. Once he discovers who’s behind it all, he starts thinking that maybe he should have left well-enough alone instead of trying to dig up secrets that were buried in the past.
Murder in the Marsh
Port Beaufort, North Carolina – December 1766
After a tumultuous time in Havana where he uncovered more family secrets in a week than most people do in a lifetime, Adam Fletcher is grateful things are finally starting to get back to normal.
That is, until an inexplicable series of brutal crimes in the region hits a little too close to home. Suddenly, Adam finds himself in the middle of hunting down clues to try and identify the suspect, or suspects, in three different murders, one of which has a mystery victim.
The Gypsy’s Curse
Beaufort, North Carolina – Autumn 1767
In this fourth installment in the Adam Fletcher Adventure Series, a gypsy family sets up camp on the edge of town peddling tinctures, potions, magic, and fortunetelling.
And like a moth to a flame, Adam Fletcher is drawn there. He decides to pay the mysterious Madame Endora a visit, just for fun — or so he thinks.
Soon after, a series of worrisome circumstances begin to unfold, one after the other, sending the sleepy port town of Beaufort into a hysterical frenzy.
Is there really a curse, or is something more sinister to blame?
