A compelling story of deception, blind trust and a quest for riches a man buried a long time ago. Forget about searching for pirate treasure or stolen art. We’ve all read those books.
Here, we have an ambitious couple settling in Northbank, Michigan, pursuing their dream careers and a peaceful life in the slow lane. Rhonda, a beautician and transplant from California, moved to J.P.’s hometown and began her own business downtown.
Nearby, on Northbank’s Main Street, a thief is breaking into businesses. A relentless thief, leaving no evidence in his wake.
J.P. is enjoying his journalist career, but, it’s not adventurous enough. As an ex-Army Ranger, a writer’s life is too tame for him. That is, until his best friend shows up with a mystery to be solved. A search for riches, hidden from a robbery long past.
A stranger knocks on their door, out of the clear blue, saying he knows of the riches buried nearby and wants to help. A deception or coincidence?
“…how did it get there?”
My brother and I had an uncle who worked the copper mines on the Keweenaw Peninsula. During the late eighteen hundreds, that was the place to be if a miner was after the purest copper on Earth. Not much of this copper needed to go through the smelting process, it was so pure.”
“So, your uncle buried some of it?”
“Exactly. As the story goes, my uncle Robert would visit home sometimes, with containers full of it. After several trips, when he had enough to fill a luggage trunk, he’d fill it with the copper and bury it.”
“I’m told it’s buried really, really deep…”
Could there be any surprises? Short answer is…yes.
You should meet these loving characters, visit this small, yet busy Midwest town. However, be warned, and be careful with whom you trust.
You don’t have to dig for ‘Deep Copper’. It’s on Amazon.
