"This book is a blast to read. It's like The Goonies and E.T. had a baby and that baby wanted to be Indiana Jones." - Zane Simon
Gideon's past brings him back home for a reunion with old friends. They are drawn back into the Superstition wilderness when they learn their childhood companion, prior to his disappearance, left them clues to the legendary Lost Dutchman Mine.
A dark shadow looms over the deadly desert as the group uncovers centuries old secrets and must choose between truth and treasure.
Crooked Top Mountain is the next chapter of the Gideon Goodwin saga. We pick up several months after the events in The Land of Look Behind where Gideon returns home to pursue an old flame. Todd and Joe have been chasing the Lost Dutchman treasure in the Superstition Mountains and stumbled across potential clues left behind by their departed friend Glenn. They chase Glenn's clues back into the mountains in search of what might have happened to their friend and quickly discover they are not the only ones on the trail of the treasure.
