Death at Willow Creek Mine
The Ultimate Cover-UP

This is a story of love, faith, enmity and hypocrisy.

The parents of three brothers have died. Shortly thereafter, under the guardianship of their Aunt Tina, the boys arrived with their widowed Aunt in northwest Nevada. In time, the oldest brother fulfills his dream of reopening their aunt's old historic gold mine. The youngest brother works underground, extracting gold ore. The middle brother is mentally handicapped; he undertakes menial jobs with gusto; he especially enjoys walking to the small community of Rabbit Brush for the mail and to the community%u2019s garbage dump. The oldest brother runs the mill that processes the ore for the extraction of free gold. He is a father figure.

Gossip has circulated in the small community that the Wax brothers practically killed their Aunt Tina to acquire the gold mine; however, there is a deeper resentment by a local female resident who claims that the mine should belong to her family.

The youngest Wax brother has enmity towards the middle brother. The oldest brother worries that this could escalate into violence: he works at keeping the youngest brother in check, but inexorably tragedy strikes, resulting in the ultimate cover-up.
