Westobou Gold by Hawk MacKinney Book Spotlight and Giveaway


By on 11/16/2016 06:23:00 AM

I read and reviewed Hidden Chamber of Death by Hawk MacKinney earlier this year--and I am excited to spotlight his latest thriller, Westobou Gold today!  Both books are part of his Moccasin Hollow Mystery Series.  Check out his latest suspense novel and enter to win a prize in the book spotlight tour giveaway at the end of this post.

Quick Summary of Westobou Gold by Hawk MacKinney. The Indian Queen would risk torture and worse to keep her secrets from these barbarians in suits of metal and their search for cities of gold. They never found the gold. Empires rose; empires fell, the centuries passed. Legend became fireside myths, but no treasure was ever found. Yet, among the grey-green drapes of wisteria and wild jasmine along the misty shrouded lowlands of bayous and marshes of the Westo River, the folktales persist.

In the lazed creep of a near-tropical dawn lit the pungent Turkish coffee permeates Moccasin Hollow. Beyond the kitchen door Lucky, Craige Ingram’s German shepherd gnaws a favorite bone. Looted burial mounds seem a world away until plundered mounds on Moccasin Hollow land brings amateur archaeologist PI Craige Ingram into the cross-hairs of kidnapping. Stealthy hideaways are concealed in old colonial brick-lined river grottoes beneath the big house of Ardochy plantation. Sex-tape underage blackmail and thrill killings on federal land spur a medical examiner’s preliminary postmortem to more than a hired cleaner’s quickie cover-up passed off as drug deals gone sour. Greed tangles a witch’s pigswill of illicit affairs and murder-to-hide-murder. Shady investigators and shadier politics stir an unexpected concoction that threatens the lives of those at Moccasin Hollow in a spiteful plot against ex-SEAL Craige Ingram and the woman he loves.

  2. Angela THOMPSON, A Mama’s Corner of the World - Thank you for hosting Westobou Gold, Book 2 in the Moccasin Hollow Mystery Series. The galley for Book 3 in the series is in final edits as well as a sci-fi title also in galley. An earlier historical romance Moccasin Trace, establishes the bloodline(s) of Craige Ingram in the Moccasin Hollow Series.

    1. I saw Moccasin Trail recently--and wondered if it wasn't an early book...now I know and will need to "backtrack" a bit on my reading list!

  3. Angela THOMPSON – Good for your “backtracking.” Moccasin Trail [Moccasin Trace] is a historical romance of boy & girl &. The manuscript of turbulent long-gone Southron times & even more turbulent characters was written AFTER Book 1, Hidden Chamber of Death, but before Westobou Gold. The time frame setting(s) of Books 1 & 2 are contemporary. Moccasin Trace is the protagonist’s families & extended bloodlines—Normandhr French, the highland clans of Scotland, Wales and landed gentry—a prequel tale of land & dangers & loss & love—all those things that still are very much contemporary. It was a hoot to write, & a lot of it is NOT fiction. Glad U ask – thank U –

    1. Barbara MONTAG – I enjoy spinning the mystery-thriller tale…especially developing the bumps & kinks of the serial characters & how the storyline characters can change things in the flick of a twisted scene. Thanx for commenting, & hope U enjoy the read.
