The Golden Catch

The Golden Catch

Author(s): Roger Weston

Location(s): Alaska

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Contemporary

Frank Murdoch lives on a remote private island in Alaska, drawn there by its peace and isolation. There he finds a secret, unearthed from a cave sealed for seven decades. His historical research attracts Abby Sinclair, a lovely archaeologist. But it also catches the attention of Mok Don, chaebol leader and Korean Mafia kingpin.

Frank Murdoch-crab fisherman and ex-CIA assassin-is back on his island with Abby, but Mok Don is closing in. Now the island’s peace and quiet is threatened by the clash of one man’s greed and another’s love.
