n this third in a series by Glen Erik Hamilton, Van Shaw is trying to go straight, but when a dying ex-con tells him of a large stash of gold just waiting to be discovered, what's a man to do?
e has been rebuilding his grandfather's house (it burned to the ground) and was running short of cash to buy building materials. He learned how to build from his grandfather who also taught him the tricks of his trade – the grandfather's that is. Grandfather – called Dono – was a thief and knew about all there was to know about that craft.
esolved to just take what he would need to rebuild the house when he was able to locate the gold and turn it into good old greenbacks, Van Shaw promised himself he would do some good with what he didn't need.
very Day Above Ground
by Glen Erik Hamilton is a delightful read. Other characters reside in this novel, but Van uses most of the space. He is a strong person who wants to do right and, it seems to him, that the odds are against him.
his is the third book in the Van Shaw series. The first of these really engaging plots won various awards. I can understand why. Indulge yourself. Obtain a copy and get set for some fun and mysterious reading.
