The Mystery of Ruby Lode

After six long months of research adventure seekers Bowen McAlister Cyrus Curran Duff Gentry and Lockhart Dawson are on their way to Boulder Colorado to explore Ruby Lode an abandoned gold mine Duff a born psychic Rating 475Bowen McAlister and his partner Cyrus Curran along with their friends Duff Gentry and Lockhart Dawson are headed out to Boulder Colorado to research and explore the abandoned gold mine Ruby Lode for Bowen s outdoor adventure company But even before they take off Duff gets a premonition that makes him uneasy When Duff tells the others they listen out of respect for their friend s psychic abilities but continue on even as Duff s fears growThey should have listened Because Duff is right Lurking deep in the mine shafts of Ruby Lode something dark and dangerous awaits the four men determined to protect its secrets at all costs including death It preys on each man s insecurities it visits them in their dreams turning them into nightmares For each man to survive he will have to look deep within himself for the truth about each other and secrets long hidden must come to the surface if all are to remain sane and survive the mystery of Ruby LodeThis novel was such a cornucopia of wonderful elements that it is hard to know where to begin Usually I start with the characterizations and with the four men mentioned above Cade has done a great job of bringing together diverse personas with some truly heartbreaking backgrounds and meshing them together as a close knit group of friends the reader loves spending time with Bowen and Cyrus have been together for 10 years when the story opens and their easy dialog with each other along with other touches makes that relationship very believable Bo and Cy have the authenticity of a long term couple still very much in love After reading the author s bio I could almost feel Cade bringing experiences from his own long term relationship into the portrait he paints here of Bo and Cy so grounded and real do they feel Next to them are their two friends Lockhart who seems shallow and commitment phobic and Duff who is psychic shy and hiding many secrets behind his insecurities Both men have background and secrets that will come out over the course of the story that will bring the reader much closer to Duff and Lockey Cade s characterizations are terrific but the ones I truly loved are the ones that will surprise you I won t go into them here as I feel that is spoiler territory but let s just say that other characters will hook you in from the beginning and like the mournful refrain from a mountain folksong will haunt the pages and the reader from then on Bravos all around for the author on characterization and character developmentThe characters are thrown into the middle of a heartbreaking and deeply dangerous mystery located in the depths of Ruby Lode an abandoned gold mine Cade skillfully builds the atmosphere in spine tingling detail amping up the anxiety and dread for the characters we have come to love until it explodes in a gut wrenching finale Parts of this story are not for the fainthearted so please take the warnings at the end of the review to heart At first I was tempted to think it was emotional overload on the author s part but as the story continued I could see that Cade had a justification for its inclusion and it all made sense in the end Again I am being obtuse to reduce any chance for a spoiler hereWhile my expertise in gold mines is limited to Maryland s yes we had a few I can tell Cade did his research and the settings seem very authentic right down to the euipment and mine layouts The supernatural elements explored here are accomplished with the same expertise and deft touches displayed throughout the novel I loved how these elements were woven into the stories starting with mere threads in the beginning adding one here and there until Cade has fashioned a old time storytelling uilt colorful with basic patterns turned into designs of complexity Parts of this book will have you in tears so have the tissues handy as you will need themSo why not five stars It all comes down to one character who I absolutely disliked right to the end I understood him and his actions but that never translated into anything even remotely approaching like especially his actions at the end I am sure others will not agree with me and for you this is a solid 5 stars So 475 stars from me for just an outstanding read from Scotty Cade You will love it as I am just uibbling over another one well done character Grab this one upNote This story contains rape mention of past sexual abuse attempted rape and child abuseCover Another favorite cover of the month for me Artist is Reese Dante whose work I love and this is another example Beautiful haunting painting of the insides of an abandoned mine Perfection in tone and coloring I love itFirst reviewed for Joyfully Jay and my blog Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words

    Normally I begin a review with a bit of a blurb But I have to preface that with a bit of a confession I am always nervous when an author jumps genre I know that sounds petty but oh well Sue me I like when my favorite writers are predictable and consistent But every now and then one of them surprises me Scotty Cade shocked the hell
