ABOUT THE BOOK

SCRAPER JONES: TREASURE HUNTER is a fast-action tale of planes, airboats, hurricanes, explosives, and, of course, treasure hunting. Jones and his band of fellow treasure hunters include six diversified individuals. Professor, a genius, has earned millions researching leads for the most successful treasure hunters in the world. Now he wants to get out of his lab and join the action! Chickenman Pete, a desert rat, never sleeps under a roof, steals for his keep, and has connections throughout the Desert Southwest for meeting the unique requirements of professional treasure hunters. Hardman, a former hard rock miner, is desert-wise, a worthy foe, and knows the Desert Southwest as well as any man. Patch, a one-eyed, ladies-man, millionaire, society-dropout is interested only in the dangers of the hunt. Marlow, a demolition expert, constantly overestimates the correct amount of high explosives (often with devastating results). Rounding out the group is Willie Bradshaw, Marlow’s friend, partner, and fellow ex-Navy Seal. Willie is a professional with a strong back and rough past who is always there when needed.

The men follow a treasure lead from the Desert Southwest right into the eye of hurricane Andrew in the southern bayous of Louisiana. Along the way they encounter twists and turns, unscrupulous underworld drug lords, desert rigors, and hurricane nightmares that would send lesser men fleeing for their lives. In the tradition of “Doc” Savage’s daring adventurers, sprinkled with the rogue twists of modern skirt-the-law yarns à la OCEAN’S 11 and THE ITALIAN JOB, and with just a touch of THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE, you’ll find few dull moments in the company of SCRAPER JONES: TREASURE HUNTER.
