ADMIRAL FARRAGUT IS MISSING, AND CHARLIE GRANT IS TAKING IT PERSONALLY. For more than 110 years, a marble slab marking the birthplace of Admiral David Glasgow Farragut sat at the water's edge on present-day Stoney Point in eastern Tennessee. Charlie Grant played on and around the marker as a child, and when it's shipped off to parts unkwn, he makes a rash promise to the Daughters of the American Revolution to bring it back. His patriotic quest takes on more heat when he learns that marker might be a clue to finding a treasure stashed away by Farragut's father. Meeting up with old friends and making new enemies in his search, Charlie won't rest until the admiral-or at least his father's gold-comes safely home.
Charles G. Haun is a native east Tennessean who has been writing for his own pleasure since he could hold a No. 2 pencil. Creativity runs in the family - his daughter is an award-winning novelist; his son is a talented singer-songwriter; and his wife is an accomplished artist. His 14-year-old basset hound hasn't found his niche yet. Looking for Admiral Farragut (2012), a light-hearted mystery-adventure story, is Haun's first book. He is now putting the finishing touches on a full-length mystery, Black Goat Bluff, set around the bluffs and farmland surrounding Tennessee's Fort Loudon Lake.
