A small town newspaper publisher and his wife, a brilliant history professor, face two mysteries when a search for gold bars hidden by outlaws in a northwest Colorado lake leads instead to the discovery of a ghastly corpse tied to a rock.
Who dumped him there? Why?
While Tucker Preston reports on the murder for his small town weekly, Billie Preston shifts her search for the gold bars from the lake to an abandoned mine. In the process, they uncover a conspiracy involving the illegal sale of dinosaur fossils worth millions of dollars. In delving too deep, their investigation could lead to their extinction.
An entry based on “Delve Too Deep ” was selected as a finalist for the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers 2021 Colorado Gold Rush Literary Award in the mystery and thriller category.
