All that Glitters


Paul Colt

FROM THE BOOK JACKET: Cajun box man known as Duval blows a safe in San Francisco and makes off with sixty thousand dollars in diamonds and precious stones. Insurance Company of North America engages Colonel David Crook's Great Western Detective League. Veteran investigators Beau Longstreet and Briscoe Cane take the case. The Jeweler's Protective Association turns to the Pinkerton Agency. Partnered with the ultra-secret criminal syndicate El Anillo, the real money from the heist is made selling unsuspecting investors shares in the mine from which the jewels were taken. The investigation crosses and double-crosses from bribery to jailbreak to murder and abduction before the pursuit twists and turns to an explosive climax in the syndicate's lair.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Paul Colt's critically acclaimed historical fiction crackles with authenticity. His analytical insight, investigative research, and genuine horse sense bring history to life. His characters walk off the pages of history in a style that blends Jeff Shaara's historical dramatizations with Robert B. Parker's gritty dialogue. Paul's first book, Grasshoppers in Summer, received finalist recognition in the Western Writers of America 2009 Spur Awards. Boots and Saddles: A Call to Glory received the Marilyn Brown Novel Award, presented by Utah Valley University.
