Publisher's Summary

Kidnapped! An honorable man has gone missing and his wife is not in the least helpful. The sheriff dithers and every day brings death closer to a reality.  

It is late 1865. After hostilities cease, the Agora Society, led by the indomitable Carl Brooke, sends a group to aid the reconstruction of Wilmington Port in North Carolina and to encourage its sister society, the Nec Temere.  

Unknown to the volunteers, a heinous crime has been committed, creating a greater urgency for the Agora's more ... colorful services.  

This is a story of a near death, a murder, and the letter that introduces Carl Brooke to "the figure that looms so vividly" in his nightmares.  

Nec Temere, Nec Timide - Neither Rashly, Nor Timidly 

In the style of Arthur Conan Doyle, Clay Boutwell brings back the Agora Society and its premier scholar, Carl Brooke. This is the third short story in the Agora Series.

Excellent and read by author!

historical-figures, thriller, suspense, kidnapping, agora-society, short

Finely crafted suspenseful mystery including a kidnapping, an outlaw, a conflicted city, and men willing to do whatever must be done for the good of all. This story is too short to be summarized, but it is well worth reading. You won't be sorry you did!
To my view, there is nothing better than a story read by it's author, and this one proves me right!
