Francis Bay is the most intriguing spy you’ve ever met. He’s a poet, a polyglot, a professional liar, an adulterer, a mystic, a confessed murderer, and- by his own calculation- a dead man walking. He’s seen too much, done too much, knows too much about some very important people.
Bay has retired to his sailboat in a Caribbean paradise, cheating death for now, searching desperately for the truth, and trying to write a novel loosely based on his career. Then he meets a local obeah man, who leads Bay into a druggy, supernatural world- and amazing redemption.
Bay’s journey of discovery is funny, agonizing, disorienting, and, ultimately, more real than we might imagine.
Marshall Evans has lived in five countries and speaks six languages. He and his wife currently live in South Carolina and go sailing whenever they can.
He graduated from the University of North Carolina (BA, English), the University of Pennsylvania (MA, English and Creative Writing), and the University of South Carolina (MBA).
