Billy Wyor - another of the Devil's Dozen

Billy Wyor  is 11 years old at the start of the story but readers do not meet him until five years later. He is 5'7" tall and lightly built with flaxen hair and pebble-grey eyes. As wild as his brother, Billy is crueller. So far, he has not turned his worst thoughts into actions.

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.
