Geronimo’s Gold (Follow-Up to a Previous Book Review Book) Now Available!

Earlier this year, I shared my review of a great history-mystery series find – The Abolition of Evil, the second book in the Matt Hawkins series by the talented Ted Richardson. I’m pleased to announce that the next in the series, Geronimo’s Gold, is now available. Here’s Ted’s description of the new book:

While attending the funeral of a former Wall Street colleague, Matt Hawkins is confronted by the sister of the deceased. Kate is adamant that her brother did not commit suicide, as the police claim—he was murdered. She believes he had stumbled upon a subversive plot to corner the world gold market. But before he could blow the whistle, he was pushed in front of a New York City subway train.

Matt and Kate’s search for the truth leads them back in time to a series of seemingly unrelated historical events—from a vast gold deposit first discovered by Indian warrior Geronimo; to a puzzling cover-up by President Theodore Roosevelt; to a secret society with its roots in one of America’s oldest universities. As they connect the dots from past to present, they are determined to get to the bottom of the gold conspiracy. But to succeed, they must contend with a powerful alliance of adversaries intent on finishing the financial war they started.


It sounds great to me – I love the way Richardson blends less well-known history with contemporary issues and mysteries. As a long-time history buff, I find “new” history fascinating, especially when it’s taught in an engaging and active voice like in this series. And Matt Hawkins is, quite simply, a great and compelling character – and one who cleverly surrounds himself by marvelously interesting friends, which make for a great supporting cast.

I have a copy, but haven’t had the chance to read it yet – I hope to have a review up one of these days (weeks? months?) when my review schedule opens a bit and permits me to actually start it… Until then, here’s what a few others have said about the book:

  • San Francisco Book Review – A fast-paced, fully loaded action novel that simply sucks the reader in and leaves them breathless. With great flow, believably rich and quirky characters, and tremendous background research, Mr. Richardson presents his stunning fiction novel to the hungry world of readers.
  • Kirkus Reviews – Richardson has done an admirable job creating a thoughtful thriller… An involving tale that proves a modest artifact can lead to a grand adventure.

Sounds good, no?  So take a look and see for yourself – and if you get to read it before I do, please leave a review in the comments!
