Warning! Cave Exploration Forbidden.  

ANNOUNCEMENT:  The cover (above) for my first novel is finished. The manuscript is going to my editor next week. In September and October I’ll be sending out announcements of my book launch and presales.  The publication is tentatively set for November, 2020.  The synopsis is below.

Phoenix, Arizona Police Chief Daniel Akumo received a call from Jeff Sooner, owner of the Sooner Campground located near the police sub-station asking for assistance. Jimmy Roystat, age 10 and his sister Rhonda, age 7, disobeyed their parents and sneaked off with Jimmy’s new friend Troy Grunell, age 12, to explore an old abandoned gold mine in the adjacent foothills. Apache-born Chief Akumo and his partner Officer Calvin Mauer sped to the cave entrance, fearing the children might encounter dangerous predators that inhabited the vast dark internal labyrinth.

While exploring the tunnels, the children made a discovery resulting in terrifying consequences. Officer Mauer entered the cave alone to begin his search and met with the same fate. Outside in the patrol car, the Chief waited for the results of his inquiries to headquarters concerning the children’s fathers and Jeff Sooner’s son. Upon receipt of the information, he hurried into the cave to join his partner in the search for the children only to find they had all vanished, The only clue they had been there was one of Rhonda’s pink shoes and Officer Mauer’s cap on the floor of one of the tunnels.

It was now up to the puzzled and deeply concerned Chief Akumo to unscramble the mystery of what happened to the children and his partner.
