Easy Come, Easy Go - Alaska Gold Fever
Author Ron Walden, Alaskan True to Life Crime Writer
Summary: Otis Fairfax, reclusive older resident of Nikiski, Alaska, had a lust for gold prospecting; it was all he wanted to do. Otis only worked when he needed cash to buy gas for his plane to scout a new prospecting site. Returning from one of these trips, his gas ran out along with his luck-- but not before old Otis finally struck it rich!
What investigators found in his plane would come to make many people rich, as long as they had some connection to it. But easy come, easy go. And possession of another man's fortune would make many people do a lot of surprising things, some not so easy and some that wouldn't just go away. Join Trooper investigator Sergeant Bob Seaton and his young protege as they track this gold trail through its various owners to an unforeseen conclusion.
