The Yukon Territory, 1895. A reclusive prospector comes to the aid of a Smithsonian explorer after she dares the frozen wilderness to capture a legendary beast known as the Sesquat. In his cabin, waiting out a storm, he regales her with the tale of his thrilling and often tragic past.

From great gold rushes of California to the silver strikes in Nevada, and then on to the inescapable lure of the Klondike, a father and son strive to keep morally afloat as the surging tide of humanity sweeps upon their land to plunder its wealth. As this age fashioned the destiny of a nation, so too would it forge a hero…

A reluctant hero, who must now return to the world he’s tried to avoid. To avenge his parents’ murders, fight for the rights of his people, and ultimately, to embark upon a path into legend.

Teeming with fascinating characters and events from the times: from Samuel Colt to Herbert Hoover; from the Civil War to China’s Boxer Rebellion; from icy maritime disasters to epic dogsled races, Silver and Gold is an ambitious novel set against the backdrop of the Gold Rush era: an age defined by larger-than-life characters – arctic monsters, vile industrialists and noble heroes – all vying against the implacable wrath of nature.

For thousands of years a secret has been hidden from the world. Popes and Kings have sought it. Theologians and historians have debated its very existence. Since the days of Solomon, one person is chosen to keep its secret, protect it from an ageless group claiming the treasure for their own dark god. Nathan Dinneck’s role as new pastor of his small hometown parish may be shorter than he expects, for visions of angels and cemeteries foreshadow coming battle for history’s most holy relic, and perhaps even the gateway to heaven itself.

Whispers about Solomon’s Grave
