"exciting amateur sleuth tale"
When Pam Livingston, Chuck Ovens and Nora Ryan lured
historian Paul Fischer to Jacksonville, Oregon, he thought
they wanted him to write a biography of Doctor
Hollingsworth. Instead, the trio hoped that Paul would
find proof that Pam was Kate Baker's granddaughter and heir
to a vast fortune. Although Paul found the proof, he never
gave it to them.
Although Paul thought he whole incident was in the past, it
reopens when his home, office and garage are broken into
and the only thing missing is the research on the Walker
sisters. When Paul receives a call from Pam informing him
that somebody beat Nora up, he flies to Jacksonville to
find out what is going on. After someone is murdered and
killer visits Nora two more times, Pam and Paul go through
the estate records and learn about a large sum of money
that has not been found. Before the killer strikes again,
Paul and Pam are determined to find the money and end the
nightmare they are living.
KATIE'S GOLD is an exciting amateur sleuth tale but it is
the antagonist who captures and holds the reader's
attention. The killer is so single minded and determined,
that he will use whatever means necessary, including murder
to get what he wants. The audience will like reading about
a woman who made her will so airtight that even the lawyers
can't find a loophole. Pam has grown since her last
appearance (KATIE'S WILL) and the audience will find her
more approachable and likable. Paul is a mench that is
impossible to dislike and KATIE'S GOLD is a novel that is
good, if not better, than it's prequel.
