About the Book:
Robert Walton’s first novel takes us back to 1976. Harry Thursday, an archaeologist, is trying to forget the violent death of his wife. An expedition to find a tomb of an ancient Inca king in the Chilean Andes ends with the discovery of a rich hoard of precious gems and trinkets, and the sudden death of the team’s leader. On the way home, Harry and his wife are robbed of their find, and Harry finds himself alone on a troller bound for Panama after his beloved wife falls overboard during a heavy squall.
1978, Harry is on a camping trip with his best friend Conner in the wild mountains of North-west Wyoming. They come upon a bawdyhouse in the middle of nowhere. CJ, one of the girls, takes to Harry and runs away with them, much to the angst of the pimp Skinny, who goes on a wild killing spree to bring her back.
Separated from Conner during a sudden blizzard, they must fend for themselves in the shadows of the Grand Teton Mountains. Wounded by Skinny, Harry battles an infection and fever and it is up to CJ to find the cabin used by the bordello to entertain customers. While they wait for the storm to end, Harry discovers the secret CJ is holding, and why her pimp wants her back, and then it is only a matter of time before the final standoff between Harry’s destiny and his terrible past.
"Bob Walton's first novel is a well-written, action-packed thriller, with enough twists and surprises to keep you turning the page. I thoroughly enjoyed it." -- Carmen Finestra (Producer of Home Improvement)
About the Author:
Robert Walton, aka Bob, grew up in Narberth, Pennsylvania. With a degree in Archaeology from Penn State University Bob has worked tirelessly over the years to live up to his father’s expectations. Having failed at that, he has traveled the world in search of the true meaning of life. Still, this has not stopped him from pursuing a career in writing that began in 2007 when he joined Pennwriters and eventually International Thriller Writers.
Bob is the creator and owner of the award winning Bob’s Bagels in central Pennsylvania and when he is not writing, he can be seen drinking coffee and discussing politics in his quaint restaurant.
His next novel extends the story of Harry Thursday in a quest to solve the riddle of the Mask of Minos. He is also working on a science fiction novel that more directly questions the meaning of life.
