Books Inc. Palo Alto proudly presents local author Rick Glaze for a reading from his book Spanish Pieces of Eight!
A riveting story of family, foreign waters, and a fortune beyond your wildest dreams...
Hours before undoing a complicated and family-busting competition for a vast treasure trove of Spanish gold, Richard Dennison dies-leaving his spoiled children to piece together the clues to track down their inheritance.
This modern-day Caribbean treasure hunt catapults four unwilling siblings-Jimmy, Alice, Zach, and Maureen-into a battle of wit and greed, and it threatens to change the family forever. Can they uncover the fortune or will the clues slip through their fingertips?
"Glaze's feeling for maritime adventures and beauty is inviting"; "puzzles, mysteries, a touch of suspense, and sea breezes. As a thriller, it's an enticing tour of a region the author knows well." --BookLife Publisher's Weekly
