Kevin John Grote books

 Skye by Kevin Grote 
THE RAVENS CIRCLE. EIGHTY TWO YEARS OF FRAGILE PEACE HANG IN THE BALANCE. TWO BOYS ARE MURDERED. THE MACKELLAN HERD IS GONE. THE TRAIL LEADS NORTH. FOR JAMIE FAWKES AND HIS KINSMEN TO FOLLOW AFTER WILL INVITE A RETURN TO THE SEVEN HUNDRED YEARS OF WAR. On the Isle of Skye, Highland clans battle for supremacy, the scales tilting back and forth between the powerful MacDonald’s and their rival, the MacLeod’s. The ravens are hungry. Death to the last man.

Tyburn by Kevin Grote After dark in 18th Century England, it a dangerous time. Honest folk avoid the roads at night, and lock themselves in as the sun goes down. Both in the countryside and the great cities. Strangers are feared and avoided. Predators roam unstopped. Only the most desparate or well-armed venture out at night. Footpads, highwaymen, thugs of every shape and size, patrol the roads and streets. Lurking in the shadows, ready to pounce on any unsuspecting victim. Lawlessness is rampant. The abuse of low-priced Gin plagues the lower classes, adding more misery to those least able to afford it. Those addicted are turning to crime in desperation. There is no organized police force.
