9781432833008: Robbing The Pillars (The Empire Barons)

Gold Rush California’s notorious “Legislature of a Thousand Drinks” launches a secret consortium of frontier barons, triggering the collapse of independent mines throughout Sierra Nevada.

James MacLaren, a fugitive from Scotland, embarks on a new life in California, escaping his secrets but not his hatred for the upper class. He is a man always on his guard, leery of the entitled and wary of his own temper. While raising a beautiful, headstrong daughter, and denying his love for a woman he cannot have, he champions miners in their fight against the Coleridge Sierra speculators seeking to maneuver a mining industry monopoly.

San Francisco’s Judge Dandridge sees himself as a man of vision. But when retributions fail in his courtroom, reparations are administered in the back rooms of vigilante justice. His venal and mercenary machinations tie him to the powerful Sam Brannan, the Chinese Tong and a shadowy control of the governorship of California.

Robbing the Pillars is a story of the working class fighting for legitimacy against a legacy of gold and all it seduces – a tale of hidden pasts, love and betrayal, and the fulfillment of dreams against incredible odds.

Robbing the Pillars is the first book in The Empire Barons series.

From the Author:

What I love about history, is that it is an ongoing record of human nature. To quote Ecclesiastes, there is truly, "nothing new under the sun." If we are open, we learn not only about events, but about ourselves. While I write historical fiction, I prefer to think of delving into the humanity of the characters. I hope to approach this in a way that promotes the best of ourselves, while shedding light on our human failings. I hope the readers find rich, well-developed characters that jump off the page, people that they really care about.

From the Back Cover:

Robbing the Pillars is a story of the working class fighting for legitimacy against a legacy of gold and all it seduces - a tale of hidden pasts, love and betrayal, and the fulfillment of dreams against incredible odds.
