Was it greed that killed them all, or was it the power of an ancient curse? Jack Bear doesn't know. Nor does he care. Falsely accused and on the run, he heads west. All he wants is to be left alone to live in peace. Fate intervenes in the form of a salty soul named McAdams who saves Jack's life. Then fate intervenes again through an act of kindness to a dying priest. The padre tells him of an ancient treasure hidden in the mountains. Yet the treasure is cursed and anyone who tries to keep it for himself will die. Jack Bear discovers the bitter truth of this when he finds himself an unwilling angel of death to the men who tortured the priest and stole the treasure map. When fate puts the map into his hands, Jack is tempted to burn it. Yet he does not, and even though he recovers the gold for its rightful owner, Jack finds he must pay a terrible price. Set in the Southwest of 1845, just before the Mexican War, Abbot's Gold is an American odyssey of heroic proportion.
