Publisher's Summary

"If you're going through hell, keep going...."

Shaken by the death of his beloved wife and wrestling with powerful personal demons, Professor Gabriel McKenna leaves New York City for New Mexico to claim an inheritance from mysterious distant relatives. He finds something other than a Land of Enchantment.

Unseen enemies threaten his life. Old friends turn up and rally to his side. Together they plunge into a lethal struggle for a 19th century treasure, the fabled Lost Adams gold. McKenna enters a world of violence, passion, sexual abuse, deceit, and death that causes him to question his core beliefs and values, and even his sense of self. Desperate to find a way home, McKenna must first unearth the secret of an old family manuscript and risk his life against overpowering odds. He must rekindle his long-dead fighting spirit and discover new reasons to live and love.

Red Gold earned the Tony Hillerman Award as Best Fiction of 2015 at the New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards. It was also named as Best Mystery of 2015 and the best eBook of the year.

I loved it

This book seemed to come out of nowhere for me. I am not normally a reader/listener of this style, but this book was a pleasure for me to hear. I have lived in Colorado and been to New Mexico a few times so I enjoyed the cultural angle immensely. Normal mysteries drive me crazy as I never can see where they are going and the end seems ridiculous. This book avoided the pitfall of totally unrealistic outcomes while still telling a pretty sold story. I enjoyed this book so much that I bought the next book in the series.

Outstanding Novel

This is the first book in the Gabe McKenna series and my first RD Kidera novel. I can't say enough about how enthralled I was with this mystery. Kidera's style kept me riveted and the characters continually amazed me with unexpected twists a nd turns throughout the story.

Great listen!

Very good story, an awesome adventure, action packed, suspenseful. I zoomed through this book, couldn’t wait to hear what was coming next and Richard Poe did a exceptional job narrating. I’m hoping the other books in this series will be as spectacular as this one. Highly recommended this book!
