A Harvest of Souls

C.C. Edmonston

Notorious highwayman Samuel Shanklin is stretching his luck, and one final robbery puts him on a dangerous path with the woman of his dreams – who may prove to be the stuff of nightmares. With his life unraveling like the stitches on a stolen purse, he must swing the odds in his favour before he winds up swinging from a rope.

Notorious highwayman Samuel Shanklin is stretching his luck, while the noose of Tyburn gallows threatens to stretch his neck. But one final robbery before he hangs up his pistols puts him on a dangerous path with the woman of his dreams – who may prove to be the stuff of nightmares. With his gang turning against him and his family unraveling like the stitches on a stolen purse, Shanklin must fight to swing the odds in his favour before he winds up swinging from the wrong end of a rope.

Meanwhile, young Jack Hunter watches helplessly as his sister edges towards insanity. Charlotte speaks of seeing auras, smelling colours and tasting sounds and her obsession with Tyburn’s hanging days forces Jack to seek a cure. But their dying mother only encourages her daughter’s ‘talents’ further. Does Charlotte possess a once-coveted ancient power or the fractured mind of a fragile adolescent? As his sister creeps closer to madness, Jack must find the courage to save her before she’s lost to the darkness forever.

A twisted gothic tale of blood and betrayal entwines these tangled souls like the threads of a hangman’s halter.
