C. R. (Randy) Willie takes readers on a thrilling search for treasure that could have lasting worldwide implications in his new historical fiction, “Heavy Metal” (published by AuthorHouse).

According to local legend, deep within Idaho’s Samaria Mountains a mysterious iron door conceals hidden treasure. The year is 1869, and Jack Crampton has dedicated his life to finding the mother lode. His blasts begin to reveal evidence of lead, silver, and an enormous deposit of a grayish, chalky mineral. However, the mineral is regarded as worthless, and the implications of Jack’s discovery won’t become apparent until nearly 100 years later.

In 1960, retired Air Force officer Burt Jones leads the way in a race against time to control the mineral Jack discovered – turns out, it’s highly volatile. The U.S. military must find the Crampton mine or be subject to Soviet domination. The outcome of Burt’s search will alter the course of history. Will he find the mine before it’s too late?
