First in the New “Midge & the Kid” Novels… The Camel’s Eye

There’s a new mystery afoot in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and this one is sure to delight readers across the country. The Camel’s Eye is the first novel in a series of mystery thrillers released by author Michael James Ball.

Sault Ste. Marie, MN, November 01, 2005 --( Midge Gregory is a retired Detroit homicide detective who moves to the quiet little town of Sault Ste. Marie along with his 10-year-old nephew. When a friend’s pet is murdered, Midge finds himself drawn into a plot to recover the mysterious Camel’s Eye, an incredible jewel thought lost to history. Midge gets in deeper than he anticipates, and discovers a multi-national plot to recover the jewel and assassinate its keepers.

The Camel’s Eye, like all of the books in the forthcoming “Midge & the Kid” series, is a fascinating blend of intriguing characters, careful research, and incredible (but entirely plausible) storylines. All of the books incorporate a real-life item or unsolved mystery into the plot. Anyone who enjoys a good mystery/thriller will love The Camel’s Eye.
