READ AN EXCERPT FROM

Gold As Ice

Prologue: February, 1868

Outside, a panicked wind rumbled like a runaway train. It blasted ice pellets and crystalized snow against the leaden glass windows like tiny battering rams and made frozen tree limbs bend and groan as the temperature dropped like an iron anchor into the single digits.

Inside the tavern, Logan looked over the top of his cards at the young stranger across the scarred table. A fire raged in a cobblestone hearth, the well-seasoned logs snapping and cracking as they sent scattered sparks of flaming wood into the room like tiny meteorites. Taking a pull on his cigar, Logan exhaled a smoke plume adding to the room’s fug, his narrowed gray eyes the color of squirrel fur. He was positive that this guy was cheating, but he hadn’t yet figured out how. He knew a cheat when he saw one because he was one himself. Had been his entire life. In fact, Logan cheated at most everything he did. He was an expert at it, proven by the fact that he had never been caught.

Puffing once again, he glanced at his hand. Eight through queen straight flush. Placing his cigar in an overflowing ashtray, he put his cards face down on the table then shoved his sizable pile of coins and bills to the center. “All in,” he declared, drawing a gasp from the crowd of men standing around the table. Several of Logan’s henchmen nodded to each other approvingly, though with nervous twitching smiles. They knew full well what happened when Logan lost at anything.

A GRIPPING THRILLER

Dead Luck

There is good luck, there is bad luck.

In 1913 Nate McCoy, a Springfield, Massachusetts detective, visited one of the most horrific crime scenes he had ever seen at which a ten-year old boy had been held captive. Years later, after the case was officially closed, he was disposing of the evidence when he came across a hidden manuscript written by the boy.

As he read the narrative, it seemed to be nothing more than a beautifully written fictional story. Nate thought, though, that what was written was impossible with no conceivable explanation. He soon found out that it was true.
