Imagine meeting a charming young woman at a dance; you fall in love, marry, and sail with her to America. At the same time you save your best friend from being captured as a deserter from the British army. Mix in literaly stumbling on a gold ingot while fly fishing and smuggling it to New York where you join the rebels. Independence from England has just been declared and the British fleet is in New York Harbor. Your country and your life are in jeopardy. This is the setting for In All Cases Whatsoever. Mr. Fords plot of battles and unlikely spies dovetails with history, and the books final event, which occurred in the Mohawk Valley, is so bizarre, one would believe it to be fiction. Chief Honeoye plays an important part. But readers will enjoy sorting it out for themselves.

About the author (2012)

After writing Sure Signs: Stories Behind the Historical Markers of Central New York, Howard Ford wrote a novel, Some Call it Treason, about a young English couple and their friend who, together, visited the American colonies and joined the rebels just before the Revolution. This most recent novel is a sequel titled In All Cases Whatsoever, to reflect the unwavering arrogance of the English government, an attitude largely responsible for the war. Those who fought the Revolution, whether soldier or spy, were not only brave, but cunning and resourceful, and worthy of our attention for their fortitude. Many, including officers, were Englishmen who fought on the Yankee side Ford, who is retired from the financial services industry, said he does not wish to abandon his beloved characters from the first two novels and is therefore planning a third to finish his series on this segment of the war. We hope that he is as successful in that project as were the first patriots. He and his wife, Ann, live in upstate New York.
