LUCY LIED

by M. J. Daspit

In Monterey, California of the late 1870’s religious tent camp meetings are held cheek by jowl with lynchings.  At this intersection of the rightous and the profane, a triangle evolves linking Doctor Jason Garrett, would-be healer accustomed to putting the truth through a contortion or two, the mute Lucy Strang, and gunman Matt Clancy, eviction agent who forces settlers off railroad land yet stalwartly defends Chinese immigrants.

Under suspicion for the murder of her brutish comman-law husband, Lucy is saved from the noose when Garrett falsifies medical testimony at trial.  He plans to marry the maligned redhead and cure her muteness.  But it’s whispered that Lucy has been dallying with the reviled Clancy.  The fabric of love begins to fray.
