Willet Dura ekes out a living as an assistant reeve in the city of Bunard, the royal city, investigating minor and not-so-minor crimes in the poor quarter. Ever since a terrible battle, Willet's been drawn to the dead, and has an uncanny ability not only to solve their crimes, but even to know when one has been committed.
When a gifted singer is found dead in the merchants' quarter of the city, everyone assumes by the signs that the old man simply died of a stroke, but Willet's intuition tells him better. When he learns that this is the second death within the last month of one of the gifted, those with a rare inherited ability, he begins to suspect that something more is afoot, and he soon finds himself chasing a mystery that could bring down the very kingdom of Collum.
In his own words;
Greetings! I'm Patrick W. Carr and I write character-driven fantasy, be it epic, suspense, or science fiction. Look for my free e-book novella coming in September of 2015, "By Divine Right," and the first full-length novel of the new Darkwater Saga, "The Shock of Night," coming in November of 2015.
