When Truth Won’t Work: Death at Willow Creek Mine Published by Outskirts Press

Novelist J. D. Savid takes readers deep underground into the dangers of gold mining and deep into the hearts of three brothers whose growing enmity results in a tragedy that requires the ultimate cover-up to show their actual love for each other.

Kodiak, AK, March 24, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Veteran writer J. D. Savid announced today the release of Death at Willow Creek Mine, The Ultimate Cover-up, published by Outskirts Press. Savid’s novel is a dramatic tale of the love and faith, enmity and hypocrisy between three brothers who re-open their aunt’s historic gold mine after the death of their parents and their arrival in northwest Nevada.

Rumors immediately surface in the nearby town of Rabbit Brush that the three brothers have done practically everything but kill off their widowed aunt to gain control of the once profitable mine. The oldest brother, Aaron, a deeply religious figure, operates the mill that extracts the gold from the ore brought up from the mine. The youngest brother, Hector, easily irritable, works underground blasting the ore with dynamite and hauling it up out of the mine.

The middle brother is Nathan, mentally handicapped but physically strong, and he does the backbreaking work of busting up with a sledge hammer the large pieces of ore Hector delivers. His pleasure, though, is walking the two and a half miles to the post office and browsing through the community’s dump, all the while talking to his ethereal friends. His wildly imaginative stories are soon interwoven with the town’s continuing gossip about the three boys’ treatment of their aunt.

Nathan’s foolish and sometimes dangerous antics at the mine begin to irritate Hector and Aaron tries to keep his two brothers in check before violence erupts between them. When tragedy does strike, Savid’s readers will revel in the unimaginable cover-up the brothers must put in place to cover up the truth.

The author has been able to use his own twenty-eight years of experience exploring two thousand feet of the underground workings of a gold mine he himself inherited to paint a convincing picture of the dangers of mining gold within the eerie meanderings of the subterranean mine shafts these three unusual brothers inhabit.
