Stephen J. Lewis never sailed the darkened seas as a child. He was never handed a suit of plate armor by his parents, or taught esoteric magic by his preacher. These deplorable shortfalls of his upbringing led him to a single conclusion: apart from back alley dentistry, the world is precious short on adventure. So he quit his job and began filling in the blanks. DEAD MEN TELL NO LIES is his first novel and, with occasional breaks for ghost pepper infused Thai food, he resides in the captain's quarters working on its sequel.

I loved the first installment of this series, and the second is even better. Lewis is back in fine form with his unique low-magic, high-fantasy setting, captivating characters, and brutal edge-of-the-knife action sequences that are second to none. I loved every page of this book, and the chapters had just the right length and narrative heft to enjoy in quick 30-minute lunch break and coffee-shop bursts, while still weaving a larger story compelling enough to keep me up on a couple of long nights. Can't wait for the next novel!
