Deadly Occupation is Book 1 in the Michael Stoddard American Revolution Mystery series. If you like Diana Gabaldon, Bernard Cornwell, and Jim Butcher, then you'll love this fast-paced, tension-filled detective novel.
"Thick with intrigue and subplots to keep readers guessing." — Caroline Clemmons, author of the "Kincaids" series
A wayward wife, a weapons trafficker, and a woman with "second sight"—it's a puzzle that would have daunted any investigator. But Michael Stoddard wasn't just any investigator.
Late January 1781, in coastal North Carolina, patriots flee before the approach of the Eighty-Second Regiment, leaving behind defenseless civilians to surrender the town of Wilmington to the Crown. The regiment's commander assigns Lieutenant Michael Stoddard the tasks of tracking down a missing woman and probing into the suspicious activities of an unusual church. But as soon as Michael starts sniffing around, he discovers that some of those not-so-defenseless civilians are desperately hiding a history of evil.
"[Michael Stoddard] is not a stereotypical hero…He's a hard-working man in a difficult situation, someone I think most readers will be able to identify with and root for." — Amber Foxx, author of the Mae Martin Mysteries series
