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? Read how in Up On Crowley's Ridge, the newest murder mystery by the author of Gotcha!, The Unlikely Predator, and 30 Days In May. Other Best Sellers By Wayne Hancock Gotcha! What happens when a riveting murder occurs among the good, yet ordinary, citizens of small-town America already trying to deal with the extraordinary events of a memorable era? Find out in this, award winning, thrilling mystery set in the depression era of the 1930s. The Unlikely Predator Another great mystery novel. The characters include Irv Hodges and his family, who have just moved to Cushing, the fictional town with too many secrets. Irv has taken a job transfer to Nichol's, the local department store, and he quickly learns that this is no ordinary town. Intrigue and murder are soon to involve him, as Irv volunteers to help the county sheriff. 30 Days in May The Year is 1904. The place is St. Louis. The World's Fair has just arrived. And So have two girls from the country. What they see and experience is way beyond their expectations - with wonderful sights and shocking murder! Readers are in for a treat as they follow the summer adventures of Katie and Pearl, small-town girls who learn first-hand about the lives of the rich and powerful. But they also are swept up in the heinous acts of mobsters who will stop at nothing to take what they want.

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.
