Product description

Review

"Boston meets San Francisco, again, and the echoes of the first collision rumble down the decades to shape the rematch in this rollicking epic tale of the California Gold Rush, modern mayhem, and the mysteries that haunt families for generations. History brought to life, and the keen Martin eye to both." --H.W. Brands, author of The Age of Gold and the Pulitzer-nominated Franklin

"Plenty of skullduggery and labyrinths of mystery lace this gem about the California gold rush. The prose and plot are as sharp as a broken piece of glass. Another masterpiece from the master of historical fiction." --Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author

"In the tradition of James Michener, this epic about the California gold rush (and a parallel modern one) is wonderfully engrossing and addictive. William Martin made me believe I was on the banks of those rugged mountain streams, panning for the dust that dreams are made of and lives are lost to. Ambitious, exciting, and vividly researched. A twenty-four karat read." --David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Murder As a Fine Art

"Epic in scale, eloquent in execution, Bound for Gold is a pure delight. The great Forty-Niner gold rush comes to vivid life in William Martin's skillful, suspenseful, and original retelling, and its resonance into the present is nothing short of mesmerizing." --John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author

"The purest gold for readers! William Martin has always been a fine craftsman and a marvelous storyteller, and this tale of the "Golden West" when the gold was real in the hand is fiction at its most enthralling. Framed by a sharply drawn portrait of today, this saga of men struggling over fortunes almost two centuries ago in a rugged and raw America--and their long shadows--is just plain great." --Ralph Peters, New York Times bestselling author of Judgment at Appomattox

"Fans of rare book dealer Peter Fallon, rejoice--he's back (with lady friend Evangeline Carrington, of course), unearthing family skeletons from the Gold Rush. Historic fact intertwines with vibrant fiction in this timely and relevant novel." --Susan Elia MacNeal, New York Times bestselling author of the Maggie Hope novels

"Bound for Gold is grand adventure, an epic saga of American gold fever in both history and the present day. Peter Fallon is still at the top of his game. Bravo." --Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Judgment and The Switch
