Overview

In they heyday of pirating that was in the late 1600's, a group of pirates buried an enormous treasure of gold bullion in the Gallapagos Islands off the west coast of South America. It lay unmolested for more that an century, until two whalers from Nantucket, Massachusetts, stumbled across it in the 1830's. Clandestinely, the two whale men hauled their stash back to Nantucket. Yet due to a complicated series of events, the gold bullion once again laid buried untill 2011, when a local brick mason named Cedric Cross discovers the gold and plots to live handsomely off it.

To turn the bullion into cash and live the good life of a multi-millionaire, Cross will tangle with theft, conspiracy and murder. Yet his criminal machinations and his scheme to live a louche life on stolen gold will come to a halt when local hero Jack Kendrick arrives on the scene. Despite resistance and apathy from the local police, Jack investigates. In doing so, Jack will solve a 200-year-old mystery, foil a ring of theft and murder, and instigate a series of events that conclude in several villians being apprehended.

This is the third work in the Jack Kendrick series by writer Charles E. Soule. Set in the maritime atmosphere of historic Nantucket Island, his two previous books in the series are "In The Same Space" and "A Biker Undone". His novels of suspense and mystery showcase the selfless efforts of Jack Kendrick, who unravels a system of thefts and a rash of related murders by tracking down the all-consuming power of greed and how it controls humans.

Soule's works will delight readers of suspense and mystery who have become enchanted with the seafaring history of old coastal America embodied in locales such as Nantucket, Cape Cod, and the beaches and seas of New England in general. A dramatic novel of suspense that revolves around the discovery of South American pirate treasure, centuries old, "Whaler's Gold" is riveting mystery fiction.
