Gold Fever

(Book 53 in the Jess Williams Western series)
A novel by

Cripple Creek had a gold rush two years ago and the town was flush with people and money. Now, the town has become dilapidated and only a handful of miners pan for gold in the creek that is drying up from a long drought.

Jess arrives in Cripple Creek, where he meets a woman by the name of Lucille Deveroux. He stays in town and while there, the miners begin finding gold again as the creek rises to previous levels caused by two separate and strange events.

The gold rush is on again and it brings new miners and new wealth to Cripple Creek, but it also brings drifters, outlaws and thieves. The town has no law and Jess seems to be putting out fires left and right. Miners are being robbed, killed and some even suspiciously vanish.

Jess tries to enforce some order in the town, even though he refuses to take the town marshal’s job when offered to him. Tempers flare and the problems grow. Jess wonders if he alone can bring order back to the town.
