$ 16.98



Description :

A twisted tale of intrigue in the antebellum South, The Lies That Bind is packed with surprises and relevant social themes.


Another get-rich scheme gone awry. Pursued by an angry mob, visionary charlatan Durksen Hurst encounters a dozen hungry slaves stranded in the Mississippi wilds. Desperate to survive, together they conspire to build their own “egalitarian” plantation, hoodwinking the town—but risking the hangman.


Meanwhile, the Frenches, a reclusive widow and her lonely son Devereau who control the town, have “adopted” a boy from New Orleans to carry on their legacy. What fatal secrets are these two concealing?


When Antoinette, the boy's mother with mysterious ties to the family, arrives to rescue the boy, a devastating upheaval is unleashed that tears asunder the once-sleepy hamlet.

 

As the story's tangled webs of deceit unravel, each startling plot twist and cathartic revelation shines a fresh light on what it means to be a man, a woman, free or enslaved—indeed, what it means to be human.

Steve Catto
About: Steve Catto is an old man, or at least that's what it says on his birth certificate. He was born in Yorkshire, but his parents took him to Australia when he was six years old and he grew up there, sometimes racing cars across the desert.

He was never very good at school, but the one thing he did learn was how to learn, and he started writing programs for the computer at the local university, much to the disdain of his teachers who told him that he would ‘never make a living out of that rubbish'. In his late teens he returned to the UK, and his parents followed him – which wasn't what he wanted because he was hoping to get away from them. His first proper job was in the computer department of an infamous Oxford publishing company, and he subsequently went on to write software for electricity control systems, and simulators for the military. He started to fly gliders and wrote programs to analyse the data from aircraft flight recorders, where he also learned to fly, and crash, lots of other types of aircraft as well – which was the best part of the job. At various times in his career he has also lived and worked in France, Switzerland, and Canada, and he now lives in Scotland. Since appearing in school plays as a child he has performed almost continuously on the amateur stage, and spent a few years scuba diving. These two things have nothing to do with each other. In terms of his pedigree as an author he has written many technical manuals and filled in countless timesheets, so is well versed in the art of conjuring up works of fiction, however he has never written a novel before, especially not one that involves a blonde girl and a man with a bow and arrow, but he did once spend three weeks working in a factory that made handles for buckets.
