Tommy Denard - the joker in the pack

Tommy Dennard  is 18 years old and 5'8" tall, with hazel eyes and reddish brown hair. He has a vertical scar in the centre of his forehead and a weal on his neck, as well as a mole under his jaw. Unmarried, Tommy lives alone in an abandoned charcoal burner’s cottage on Aldington Fright, where he keeps three horses. He has a merry sense of humour and devotes most of his spare time to the local ladies, maidens and wives alike. He calls himself a labourer but makes most of his legitimate income from trading horses. That shared interest has led to a close friendship with James Wilson.

Book Description

5 April 2012
Violence, love, loyalty and betrayal among the smugglers who terrorise the coasts of southern England.  For years the Aldington Blues and the Burmarsh Gang have fought each other over the lucrative smuggling trade in Kent.  The rivalry was bitter and the stakes were high.  Now the feud between the two smuggler leaders, George Ransley and James Hogben, is played out in deadly earnest. While their men grow rich, fall in love or gamble away their loot, the intense struggle between Ransley and Hogben follows a twisted route through bloodshed, treachery and wealth. But times are changing and the spectre of the gallows hangs over them all when a popular naval officer is killed by a smuggler. As the government men close in, the gangs join forces. But will it be enough to stave off defeat, capture and death?Meticulously researched and based on contemporary court papers and other records, “A Devil’s Dozen”
recreates the vanished world of the smugglers who were once the kings of the British underworld.
