Dust of Lies by G.K. Davenport Weaves Together Family Secrets and Lost Treasure



From the moment I first read this manuscript, I fell in love. While the lost Confederate gold has played a role in several novels, Dust of Lies by G.K. Davenport weaves this myth into a family story that will captivate the reader from the first page to the last.

On a hot, sultry day in the little town of Barber, Kay witnesses the demolition of the old jail. A reporter for the local newspaper, even the blistering heat of an Arkansas day won’t stop her from grabbing a story for the Gazette.

In the rubble, Kay discovers a haunting poem etched into a block of plaster. Written by a young man who died in his cell, his cry from the grave leads her on a quest that will take her from Arkansas to Texas and back through history to uncover the truth about his family and rumored Confederate treasure. With the truth covered by a dust of lies, Kay must determine who is friend and foe to survive.

The manuscript for Dust of Lies won second place in a fiction category at the OWFI (Oklahoma Writer’s Federation, Inc.) Conference. It has been my sincere pleasure to help G.K. fine-tune a fascinating story that lovers of southern fiction, family secrets, and history will enjoy. I won’t be surprised if many more awards follow the first.
