When spurned suitor Alex Neville swears to the lovely Susanna, "They'll keep on dying. I can wait forever," she knows he is pronouncing a death sentence on every lover she'll ever have. It's no wonder that when the dashing and powerful new lord shows admiration for the beautiful girl, she sees him as the answer to her prayers: a man not easily killed.
Will Evers, new lord of Daniel's Fork, detests the village "witch", as he calls Setiyah, the healer. She has declared him the "wrong man for the job", quickly becoming the thorn in his side. At the town pub, he meets and romances the lovely Susanna, thereby becoming the target of her murderous suitor. Drawn into a deadly game of cat and mouse, Evers soon realizes the magnitude of the cunning evil he faces. Determined to catch the vicious killer, the handsome lord is forced to seek the help of the "dratted witch", as he sets a trap to catch a cunning killer, using himself as bait!
Set in a future where our technology has disappeared and humanity lives once again by the light of torch and hearth, this postapocalyptic, dystopian mystery is a real genre bender. Written in light, flowing prose, it blends humor, eroticism, mystery, romance, and science fiction into one highly entertaining story.
This novel contains some strong sexual content not suitable for younger listeners and may be offensive to some.
