Ffolkes' Medicine: The Adventures of Geoffery Armitage Ffolkes Begin by B. R. Stateham
A Geoffery Armitage Ffolkes Mystery
Fireside Mysteries (Trade Paperback)
Publication Date: May 2010
About Ffolkes' Medicine (from the publisher): Geoffery Armitage Ffolkes is a brazenly opinionated braggart who is foppish to the extreme, yet urbane and erudite -- if not truly brilliant. He is also a duelist, diplomat, spy, pirate and physician. And he has another gift few humans have. Two hundred years before the creation of the brilliant mind of Sherlock Holmes, Ffolkes is gifted with insight and "prognostication". His sharp observations and the following inductive reasoning make Ffolkes a master at solving crimes.
The adventures take place in Caribbean city of Port Royal, Jamaica in the late 1600's -- the height of piracy activity in the New World. Port Royal was called, by many, the Sodom and Gamorrah of the the Caribbean.
Ffolkes' Medicine is his story, or rather the beginning of his story. A glorious adventure for anyone who loves mysteries, dashing rogues, pirates, and high-sprited adventure.
