A novel opens with an author shooting himself in a boat on a misty Canadian lake. The best-selling author of the book then makes his fiction fact. He leaves behind a map in the form of his novel, a quest for his distant son to pursue, to recover a missing list of French traitors and keep the names from the wrong hands. As the fiction unfurls, secrets surface, and the realities come home to roost. Will Chris Carver unravel his father’s riddle? He must take a journey through time and across continents, following his father’s fiction to unearth the hidden facts, ultimately hoping for little more than his survival … to the final chapter.
Sugarcane Lane is a tale of treachery and death, love and lust, set in the Australian sugar cane fields. When your past catches up with you, your future looks bleak, unless you can do the unthinkable to keep your skeletons at bay. But will the price you pay be high enough? Will what you gain compensate you for what you’ve lost? When there’s no going back … how fast can you run?
