It’s 1898, and one of history’s most abundant gold discoveries has shaken awake the desolate city of Cape Nome, Alaska.
This monumental find by John Brynteson, Jafet Lindeberg, and Erik Lindblom earns them the moniker of the Three Lucky Swedes.
News of their good fortune spreads swiftly, and by the summer of 1900, tens of thousands of dreamers trek over land and by sea to the mines surrounding Anvil Creek and upon the Bering Sea beaches, where gold deposits pepper the soft sands.
Cape Nome chronicles the continuing adventures of Percy Hope, following his exploits two years earlier in Hope City. Percy, now a journalist for William Randolph Hearst’s San Francisco Examiner, is sent on assignment to Nome to report on the next great stampede.
Along the way, Percy encounters and befriends the legendary gunman Wyatt Earp and his spirited wife, Josephine, as well as an assemblage of amusing, disarming, and sinister characters, including a sea monster known as the Qalupalik.
Cape Nome is a riveting story of betrayal, murder, kidnapping, and government conspiracies, all of which form the backdrop for Percy Hope’s struggle to uncover the truth in a world poisoned by greed, deceit, and lies.
BIOGRAPHY Neil Perry Gordon achieved his personal goal as an author of historical-fiction with his first novel--A Cobbler's Tale, published in the fall of 2018. With over fifty four and five star reviews praising the story and his writing style, he released his second novel--Moon Flower the following year. In the fall of 2019 the metaphysical fiction sequel to A Cobbler's Tale--The Righteous One was published.
His creative writing methods and inspiration have been described as organic; meaning that he works with a general storyline for his characters and plot, rather than with a formal, detailed outline. This encourages his writing to offer surprising twists and unexpected outcomes, which readers have celebrated.
His novels also have the attributes of being driven by an equal balance between character development, and face-paced action scenes, which moves the stories along at a swift page-turning pace.
Ready for 2020, Neil Perry Gordon once again explores the historical-fiction genre with two new novels: Hope City and The Bomb Squad.
Hope City is the first in a series chronicling the 1898 Alaskan adventures of the protagonist--Percy Hope. While The Bomb Squad tells the World War 1 story of Max Rothman an American patriot, protecting the homeland from the German spy, Dr. Harold Schwartz.
The author has attributed his love for the creative process from his formative years spent learning-to-learn at the Green Meadow Waldorf School.
