Deadly Declarations by Landis Wade
“I became fascinated with the story of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence when I interviewed Scott Syfert on Charlotte Readers Podcast about his non-fiction book on the topic. There were too many interesting facts and too many conspiracies involved in the tale not to write a novel with the Meck Dec at the center of the action.”
