About the Book
After Detective Mike Mason’s partner finds a mysterious gold coin on a Pacifica beach, a local reporter does a little sleuthing of his own and ignites a modern-day gold rush. Encouraged by his partner, Mike steps into the middle of the frenzy and quickly finds he’s once more dealing with the wiles of a lovely but treacherous woman. Without hesitation, he joins her in her quest as they scour the town looking for a map that, if the rumors are true, was left by the legendary Ohlone Indian Armando. As the quest turns deadly with the bodies of those who have helped in the search start turning up, Mike realizes only time will tell if he will find the map and gold—and if he’ll escape with his life.
