This novel is full of action as Tom and Warren first have to get their gold mine back from squatters--They also have to figure out who is behind the theft. The men originally there did not have a full brain between them! Warren really knew what he was doing and came up with ingenious ideas to get more gold out of the supposedly played out mine. Tom and his ex Sargent friend figured out a way to keep any of them including the brains of the group from ever returning! There is a lot of action as Tom and Warren enter the California gold rush. Will Tom and Lucy ever be able to leave and return to build up the horse ranch Tom really wants?

About the Author: (from Amazon)

John came west as a young man and settled in Berkeley where he graduated from the University of California. He still lives and writes there and often gives a talk on the California gold rush to the gang at the Freight and Salvage.

He spent a lot of time digging into that gold rush too and many of his stories take place back then. John's characters are so real they'll jump right off the page and talk to you; his villains have hearts as cold as midnight and his heroes almost always do the right thing in the end.

He's working up quite a reputation for his knowledge of that era too. His blog, My Gold Rush Tales, attracted the interest of some TV folks and he appeared in a segment for the Travel Channel about Henry Meiggs, the man who built San Francisco's famous Fisherman's Wharf.

While his first novel, Hangtown Creek, a story of adventure, romance, and coming of age in the early days of the gold rush, was published in 2011, his brand new book, Into the Face of the Devil, moves between Hangtown and the sawmill where James Marshall first found gold, and pits a young man in love for the first time against a killer so evil he could pass for Satan.
