Cop and Coin A Novel
A strange man with music and stories charms a young man with tales of Monsters, Devils, Magic Coins, and Death. Along the dirt road, Buncombe Turnpike in 1834. The stories become too real far too quickly and set off a tale of two silver coins from a set of 30 used to seal a world-changing event in the Middle East many years ago.
The Coins and their influence interact with the History of North Carolina from then to the present day. Local community leaders arrange to protect others from the evil associated with the silver. Until the influence reappears in modern-day Asheville NC.
A Police Officer with family ties to the old ways and connections to the more unusual aspects of the Asheville Community attempts to discover why suddenly a Killer has arrived in Asheville and how he is connected to it all.

Fascinating Topic and Well Written! By 3catz2 on December 26, 2016
A well-written story about a couple of old coins that go through different hands from the 1800s through today. The shekels seems to carry an evil curse and a promise of youthfulness which tempts people who have a lack of right and honesty. I have always found folktales of the mountains of North Carolina fascinating since my roots come from the area. This is a blend of folktales and believable truths woven into the story continuing through each adventure. It kept my interest throughout the book.
