In a tweed coat and pith helmet, Hannibal Jones stands out from the hardscrabble crowd on the Nevada frontier. But the legendary mining geologist fears no man, dead or alive - and that includes the ghost believed to haunt the long-closed Alice Mine. A man named Lucky Haggerty struck gold with the Alice, and then mysteriously shut it down before his death. Now, Hannibal is trying to find out what treasure the mine still holds - and who owns it. After someone tries to scare him off, he starts digging into Lucky's life. What he finds is one beautiful woman - and then two more after that. Before long, Hannibal's investigation touches off an avalanche of greed, lust, and anger. And for a man who just wanted to bring a dead mine back to life, the time has come to face down a murderous enemy, and somehow get off this mountain in one piece...
