The Secret of the Stones by Ernie Dempsey

The Secret of the Stones

I have just finished reading a vivid Dan Brown like tale set in the Southeast part of USA. Ernie Dempsey weaves a wild trail, edifying our rich Southern history, while peppering the mind full of delicious images. Instantly pulling the imagination into a tale of suspense, action, and a trail of blood pointing to famed lost Indian gold.

Ernie I’m proud to have enjoyed listening to your book in audio format. I have been catching parts of it on my way to and from school this week. I’m definitely looking forward to your next ketchup flavored lollypop.
