About this title

Synopsis:

Up on Crowley's Ridge A murder mystery By Wayne Hancock In January, 1966 a small group of American scientists traveled to Brazil seeking new and exotic plants to test for curative powers. It was a secret mission sponsored by a consortium of big American pharmaceutical companies who have pooled their talents and money to find a cure for cancer. They are determined to beat a group from Europe who are sponsoring a similar search in the rain forests of Africa. The stakes are huge for the winning team. The scientists traveled deep into the Amazon rain forests, talking to native tribes along the way. One small, obscure, tribe whose people have never even heard of cancer, showed them the plants the natives used and consumed daily to maintain their incredibly good health. The scientists collect over a hundred samples to take back to their lab in New York for testing. Among them is liquid taken from a plant that the natives wouldn't go near, claiming it brought death to any one who touched it. They collected the sample in a glass vial and labeled it sample # 23. How did this small sample get to Northeast Arkansas and why did five people die before three men, calling themselves "The Varsity Club", solve the mystery and bring the perpetrator to justice?

About the Author:

A Navy veteran of WWII Hancock currently lives in Arkansas with his wife of 60 years. He spent 40 years with J.C. Penny Co. managing stores in Missouri and Arkansas, then spent the next 20 years operating a commercial real estate consulting firm out of his home. All his life he wanted to write novels so in January of 2005 he sat down at his computer and wrote Gotcha!, his first mystery story. He published it at age 80. It was a success, so it was quickly followed by The Unlikely Predator and 30 Days In May. Up On Crowley's Ridge is his fourth exciting murder mystery.
