Westobou Gold, Hawk MacKinney

The Indian Queen would risk torture and worse to keep her secrets from these barbarians in suits of metal and their search for cities of gold. They never found the gold. Empires rose; empires fell, the centuries passed. Legend became fireside myths, but no treasure was ever found. Yet, among the grey-green drapes of wisteria and wild jasmine along the misty shrouded lowlands of bayous and marshes of the Westo River, the folktales persisted.

In the lazed creep of a near-tropical dawn lit the pungent Turkish coffee permeated Moccasin Hollow. Beyond the kitchen door Lucky, Craige Ingram’s German shepherd gnawed a favorite bone. Looted burial mounds seemed a world away until plundered mounds on Moccasin Hollow land brings amateur archaeologist PI Craige Ingram into the cross-hairs of kidnapping. Stealthy hideaways are concealed in old colonial brick-lined river grottoes beneath the big house of Ardochy plantation. Sex-tape underage blackmail and thrill killings on federal land spur a medical examiner’s preliminary postmortem to more than a hired cleaner’s quickie cover-up passed off as drug deals gone sour. Greed tangles a witch’s pigswill of illicit affairs and murder-to-hide-murder. Shady investigators and shadier politics stir an unexpected concoction that threatens the lives of those at Moccasin Hollow in a spiteful plot against ex-SEAL Craige Ingram and the woman he loves.

Westobou Gold is the heart-pounding second installment of Hawk MacKinney’s thrilling Moccasin Hollow Series! Westobou Gold ensnares us, fevered readers, in its intricately spun web, entangling us with lost treasure of myth and legend, an underage pornography ring, and brutal murders committed for the thrill alone. I was engrossed in Westobou Gold from the moment I began reading the intriguing almost tongue-tying premise. Multiple sub-threads converge in Westobou Gold by Hawk MacKinney with glorious unpredictability, creating an all-consuming novel that grips and pulls us, fervid readers, along its perilous path riddled with vicious villainy and unforeseeable risks that put the courageous ex-SEAL Craig Ingram’s life and that of the woman he loves in jeopardy. Westobou Gold by Hawk MacKinney will have any reader anxiously turning the pages as it did me!

The time of Indian Queens and the secrets they ferociously carried to their graves have all but faded to whispered myths of courage. Legend turns to myth, myths turn to tales swirling beside the fire, while the treasure these tales behold still remain unfounded.

Sipping his Turkish coffee with his loyal German Shepherd Lucky enjoying his favored bone just beyond the kitchen, burial mounds and life-threatening peril are the farthest things from Craig Ingram’s mind. Ransacked burial mounds in Moccasin Hollow grabs the attention of amateur archaeologist and private investigator Craig Ingram. Investigating the pillaged site puts Craig Ingram in dire straights from kidnapping, to blackmail, to murders covering murders. With unscrupulous investigators and the medical examiner’s post mortem revealing something more troublesome than a drug deal gone wrong, Craig Ingram must unravel the mystery shrouding Moccasin Hollow’s looted burial grounds if he hopes to protect the woman he loves.
