Sam Milton is on the trail of lost gold ...but as he adjusts to living in a small West Texas town, he struggles to balance the two major interests in his life: the secret Lost Sublett Mine and his relationship with popular café owner SmidgeonToll. Things get more complicated when he finds out others are also interested in the lost gold mine.
Tensions mount when several deaths baffle the local sheriff. Even worse, Sam seems to have some connection with most of the victims. As the mystery intensifies, Sam realizes he will have to act quickly to find and stop the killer before the woman he loves becomes the next victim.
Is this the work of a homicidal maniac? Or is it perhaps the curse he had been warned about?
Could it be both?
The exciting sequel to The Fever is the second book in the Traces of Treasure series.
