THE ALASKAN ADVENTURES OF PERCY HOPE - BOOK 2
TO BE RELEASED FEBRUARY 2021
It’s the year 1898, and one of history’s most abundant gold discoveries has shaken the desolate city of Cape Nome, awake. This monumental find by John Brynteson, Jafet Lindeberg and Erik Lindblom; three men who would become infamously known as, the Three Lucky Swedes.
News of their good fortune spread swiftly, and by the summer of 1900, tens of thousands of dreamers trekked over land and by sea, to the mines surrounding Anvil Creek, and upon the Bering Sea beaches, where gold was found deposited in the soft sands.
Cape Nome is the continuing Alaskan adventure story of Percy Hope, following up on his exploits from two years earlier in book one of the series—Hope City. Percy, now a journalist for William Randolph Hearst’s San Francisco Examiner, is sent on assignment to Nome to report on the next great stampede.
Along the way, Percy encounters and befriends, the legendary gunman Wyatt Earp and his spirited wife, Josephine, as well as an assemblage of amusing, disarming and sinister characters, including a sea monster known as the Qalupalik.
Cape Nome is a riveting story of betrayal, murder, kidnapping and government conspiracies, while Percy Hope struggles in his search for the truth in a world poisoned by greed, deceit, and lies.
