Book Three of the Klondike Mystery Series by Vicki
In the summer of 1897, Fiona MacGillivray and her eleven
year-old son, Angus, arrive in Vancouver in time to hear the news
gold discovered in the Klondike! Fiona immediately sets off for
Skagway, Alaska, intent on opening a theatre. After one encounter
with infamous gangster Soapy Smith and his henchman Paul Sheridan,
she decides to pursue her ambitions on the other side of the border
in Dawson City. As a dying man breathes his last, he passes on to
Sheridan a map pointing due north to the fabled Gold Mountain,
where hills of gold keep the heat from hot springs contained in a
valley as warm as California.
Sheridan is determined to become the king of Gold Mountain and
to marry Fiona and make her his queen. Fiona, of course, wants no
part of these mad plans. When Sheridan refuses to take no for an
answer, Fiona must rely on Corporal Sterling of the North-West
Mounted Police, young Angus, and a headstrong assortment of
townsfolk to help thwart his scheme.
