WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - eMusicWire -- Stone Coat Man, newly released by award-winning author, Dianne L. Hagan, tackles social justice, domestic violence, and gender equity in a compelling mystery in which the past and the present and reality and legend intertwine.

Retired librarian Marian Greene stumbles upon a body during a morning walk and is confronted by a giant. Is the ogre a figment of her imagination or the Genoskwa of Seneca myth? Gunfire, a second body, and two missing people ignite a community-wide search for answers.
