“Dead Men Have No Voice,” set in modern day finds Byron Meade, world class murder mystery writer, back at his lake house in this second of a trilogy of productions, to continue with his convoluted plot to recapture portions of his life that he feels he has lost. In this production Byron has to deal with the ever-twisting realities of his family life, which is not something that he has ever been good at. His protégé, Joshua Townsend, is in love with his daughter Rebecca Devlin, who does not know that Byron is her real father. Rebecca’s husband, Christopher Devlin, Byron’s accountant, has escaped from prison and has returned to Byron’s lake house in hopes of clearing his good name from the entrapment that Byron placed on him in the first production, The Lake House Project. Unfortunately, Christopher has brought another escaped convict into the picture who Byron knows all too well, Harold Mandrake (Harry) who has intentions of killing Byron for having been the catalyst to his having been in prison in the first place. Certain that he is willing to join Harry in this process for the same kind of entrapment by Byron, Christopher (Chris) is ready to go back to prison if need be to ensure that Byron pays for what he has done to him in the first episode. The ever evolving web of mystery unfolds even further in this second episode of The Lake House Chronicles. The first production, The Lake House Project, started Byron’s attempts at saving his own life from the convoluted mind games he has had to play to become such a successful writer. Now he finds himself tied up even tighter in this second episode, Dead Men Have No Voice. Will Byron finally figure out how to escape his own internal demons in order to find the life worth living he desires, or will he loose the life he has in the process; this question looms as this second episode sets the scene for the final production, Mandrake’s End (a title of which does not necessarily spell out what it might lead the reader to think), where Byron Meade will have to make a decision of whether to forfeit his life for the love he seeks, or hold on to the fame his life has achieved thus far to maintain the position that he has become so accustomed to. The three productions will be brought together in the spring of 2015 as a single motion picture titled “The Lake House Chronicles”.
