A Cold Copper Moon--at 80,000 words. If you think it was hard to get to that many words, it was. But that's only half the story-- because I threw out about 40,000 words on the way!
Who knows. Maybe those words will show up later in another book. Maybe not.
A Cold Copper Moon is all about Cooper vs. Big Oil (and the Chinese Tong and oil wildcatters) in and around our beloved Everglades.
And also the mystery of Maxie's (Cooper's kidnapped son) disappearance is finally resolved. But I can't tell you about that without...you know...that would ruin the whole story.
Anyway...the end is here!
