Thunder Canyon

"Donald Brewer has appeared on the Discovery Channel and the Learning Channel in episodes detailing the manufacturing of counterfeit U.S. currency."

Thunder Canyon is a fantasy/historical fiction book of a U.S. Secret Service case in 1900. A trio of cousins enters the Mouse Gate at Walt Disney World and travel back in time to assist two Secret Service Operatives investigating a counterfeit gold bar and coin case. The case takes place in the gold mining boom town of Cripple Creek, Colorado. The story is unique since it details the use of gold coins at the turn of the century. They live the history.

This book is unusual, since it deals with the counterfeiting of gold coins and gold bars around the 1900s. Most Americans, outside of coin collectors, don’t realize that gold coins were once a common form of currency in our country. In the book are photos of a counterfeit gold coin detector, patented in 1857, that depicts spaces for 1 dollar, 2.5 dollar, 3 dollar, 5 dollar, 10 and 20 dollar gold coins. The book is set in 1900, Cripple Creek, Colorado, a gold “boom town.” It details a Secret Service Investigation of a counterfeit gold coin and bar operation.

“Worthy of Trust and Confidence” is Donald Brewer’s first book, published in 2014 by TotalRecall Press. The same trio of cousins, researching a family history project, encounter a leprechaun who gives them a coin to a Magical Mousegate. The Mousegate is in Walt Disney World and will transport them to an old West Secret Service counterfeiting case. The trio is embedded with the consciousness of the three main characters in the book and follow the case from beginning to end while experiencing life through their characters’ eyes, heart and minds.
