Richard Kauffman has completed his new book “The Silver Bottle Mystery”: an enigmatic puzzle of epic proportions as two friends decipher codes following unexpected leads.

Richard’s first memory was living in South Fork, a small burg along the south fork of the Eel River in Northern California, which because of the disastrous winter rains of 1964-65, now exists only in those memories. Sometime before South Fork was wiped from the maps, the family moved to Fairfax where they lived until the summer of 1952. From there they moved to Atwater where certain job opportunities afforded a better way of life. After a six-year obligation to the US Army, and attending college, he along with his wife Fran, started teaching in Christian schools, the first being Valley Christian Academy in Santa Maria. That was 1972. It was then these mysteries first took shape and Rich owes it all to eight little second graders who somehow found their way into the pages of this first book and became main characters. These little ones are now in their late forties and have no doubt forgotten their second grade teacher, but he will never forget them. It is to those funny little kids these stories are dedicated.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Richard Kauffman’s suspenseful tale uncovers a cryptic message leading to an unforgettable adventure.

Soft barely perceptible screams are heard coming from the mysterious house on Michigatta Ridge and at times flashes of light, accompanied by mysterious images, appear from the attic dormer window. That for some may not seem so strange, but this house has not been occupied for over twenty-five years… On the first day of summer break, while searching about and trying their best to stay out of trouble, Billy and Marie Allison pull from a dusty photo album a photograph torn down the center. Upon the glossy surface a partial message had been written. It read: …Three silver bottles…will be for Will…Step to the eas…just half a foot… was all they could read for the other half of the photograph was some 200 miles away at the Allison house in Bakersfield. After some unforeseen adventures the two pieces are connected, but it makes no more sense than when they were apart.

Kauffman concludes by asking readers, “Is there any connection between that torn photo and the mysterious house on Michigatta Ridge? There is, but you’ll never discover what that is until you read The Silver Bottle Mystery. Read about the adventures they share with Alan, Julie and Barbara as the five try to solve the mystery of the cryptic message. What are the silver bottles; where are they, and what do they hold? Discover the answers to these questions while you share in their adventures.”
