Cade, Scotty. “The Mystery of Ruby Lode”, Silver Publishing, 2012.
Something Left Behind…
I have been a fan of Scotty Cade since his first book and I am proud to say that I still am. He is a writer that takes us into his books and holds you there by introducing you to real characters with real emotions that have real loves. This book is a bit different that his others in that he moves into a new genre, leaving male/male romance behind and takes us into the lives of four friends who attempt to solve the mystery of Ruby Lode. Bowen McAlister, Cyrus Curran, Duff Gentry and Lockhart Dawson go to Boulder, Colorado to explore a gold mine that has been abandoned. As they travel to Ruby Lode, Duff, a psychic from birth senses that something is not quite right and he becomes more and more uneasy the closer they get.
We learn that something was left behind at Ruby Lode and whatever that is, it is foreboding and it makes the four know that it is there by preying on the guys’ weaknesses and insecurities. The secret it holds threatens ach of the men and their lives.
Because of the nature of the book, it is very hard to review without spoiling a terrific read. I could not stop reading and found myself glued to the book and to my seat and I can only tell you to read it to discover what I am talking about.
