“Another winner from Alan Eysen. If you like interesting characters, all with their own stories, this second novel in the Martini Club Series is for you."—Beverly Lawn, Author, Poet and English Professor Emerita Adelphi University
There they go again—a couple of them getting shot at—this time while flying over a dead-beat farm they were conned into buying for a million dollars. Smart, savvy, retired and bored, the Martini Club guys go looking for a little adventure and a bunch of their money back. What possibly could be valuable enough down there for somebody to shoot at them? The answer will take The Martini Club on a wild ride through space and time. But will they solve the mystery before someone gets killed?
"Author Alan Eysen's Martini Club imbibers are at it again. In the latest Martini Club mystery, the members join forces to protect their interest in property which they believe to have been seeded with residual bits of pricey platinum following a massive asteroid explosion thirteen thousand years ago. The author has a merry time introducing colorful new characters, each with a fascinating back story, and delivering mini-lectures on paleoanthropology, eighteenth century piracy, the DNA of arthropods, the Wailing Wall and the tensile strength of nanotubes. The latest Eysen romp with the club members suggests an intriguing segue from mystery to science fiction." —★★★★★ Reader Review
