One man stumbles across a vast fortune but learns that retrieving it may cost him more than he’d ever expected…
When a bank job goes wrong, explosives expert Caleb Cantrill accidentally ends up with all the gold. His criminal associates, members of the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang, want nothing more than their gold returned and to see Caleb six feet under.
In a small valley in the rugged mountains of Western British Columbia, Caleb hides his ill-gotten gains, then finds a place in which to lay low, a mysterious cavern with something inside that makes his sacks of gold seem worthless. But there’s a problem inside this cavern, a problem that wants nothing more than to have him for dinner.
Fighting for his life, Caleb releases untold horrors from the past onto a small town nestled in the heart of the valley, a town already in the grips of a massive gold rush. When a powerful local businessman learns of Caleb’s amazing find in the cavern, he decides he wants it all for himself and won’t take no for an answer.
Thanks to a blow to the head, Caleb discovers he can’t remember the location of either of his fortunes. Now, he and his newfound friends must fend off the incoming bandits while trying to cleanse the valley of the monstrous blight he unleashed, which, if left unchecked, might eat every living thing in sight.
[This is the first book in a brand new THREE-BOOK prequel series to Katie Berry’s award-winning CLAW: A Canadian Thriller, which expands and enriches the previous adventures of Caleb Cantrill and Kitty Welch and takes them both to places they never expected.]
