Most people at one time or ather daydream about finding a huge stash of money and speculate what they would do with it. It usually starts off with spend, spend, spend, then the reality of being discovered with someone else's money sets in. The mind goes into overdrive trying to surmount all the eventualities. A Bag of Money embraces and overcomes these problems in what I believe creates a different and interesting approach. This dilemma faces usually honest, upstanding citizen John Lester. While leisurely walking through the woods with his dog, Danka, he stumbles across a hockey bag full of money. Drug money, lost money, manna from heaven, he's t sure which. Should he keep the money or turn it over to the police? The decisions he makes changes his life forever. The book presents John's point of view, the search by the people who lost the money and the police efforts to find it. Detective-Sergeant Jim Mcdonald is back on the case with his usual dogged perseverance and drives it to what I hope you will accept as a successful conclusion.
Art Burton lives in Latties Brook, Nova Scotia, Canada with his wife, Flame and dog, Charley. He took an early retirement from The Halifax Herald at the end of 2002 where he had been a printer for 26 years before joining the IT Department. When he left the hustle and bustle of life in the big city for the more relaxed, laid-back lifestyle of rural Nova Scotia, he decided it was time to move up from printing to writing. This is his fourth mystery novel. He is also the author of two books of related-short stories about the hobos who passed through Central Nova Scotia during the Great Depression.
