About the Book

Lee Robert Jackson's ability to detect spoken lies by the odor emitting from the speaker brings a rush of federal agents to Farmers Mill in an effort to hire the young farmer or to prevent him from being used against their agencies. Seedy characters mingle with FBI agents and CIA operatives in a battle of wits.

Fear of lie detecting creates conspiracies from the White House to Congress. Bureaucrats fear the orderly function of their activities hangs in the balance.

Jackson must earn money to regain Four Oaks, Lucy Crabtree's family farm before the fiery redhead will agree to marry him. CIA's beautiful McCoy twins set a trap for him as Sherry, the judge's daughter initiates a campaign of her own to acquire Four Oaks for herself.
