At the end of the previous book in The Johnny Skull Series – “The Great Sicilian Rabbit Hunter” – Johnny discovers a fortune in gold and cash in an abandoned coal mine. He then proceeds to give many of his friends a gift of $20,000, but he remains the anonymous gift giver. “A Tribute To His Heroes” – the fifth in The Johnny Skull Series – follows the recipients of the gifts and how their new wealth affects their lives.
Returning to the story line are many of the characters from the previous four books of the series, including Emily and Cimmaron, Rocky, Diego, Trudie and Marlie, Sheriff Webb, Helga, Sarah and Vanessa, Richie, Omaline, Saundra and Jenny, Greta, and Xerxes, the Persian. New characters include an ex-Marine and an undercover Israeli operative.
A sub-plot of the story is the murder of a radical Muslim cleric, how that murder intertwines the lives of several of the characters, and the international intrigue that builds upon that incident.
