John Memeo, a devoted husband, father, and successful lawyer, has completed his new book “Unwinding the 12-Karat Ticker: The Secret of Morley Mountain”: an exciting adventure full of hidden secrets. John writes,

“In Unwinding the Twelve-Karat Ticker: The Secret of Morley Mountain, a rather mundane summer break appears to be in store for good-natured sixteen-year-old fraternal twins Tyler and Samantha Cole and their friend Jake Rogers. An upcoming houseboat vacation on a nearby lake promises to be the highlight.

But a folktale from the bygone gold rush era and clues from an antique pocket watch belonging to a mysterious gambler ignite the prospect of unearthing outlaw treasure hidden near the lake over a century ago. Applying brainpower and old-fashioned legwork, as well as having a bit of luck, the pieces of a curious puzzle begin falling into place.

However, a seemingly harmless slip of the tongue alerts others seeking the treasure that someone else may possess the final clue. A dangerous game of cat and mouse ensues with the three teenagers as prey and the hunters eager to pounce. The threesome finds themselves being pursued in an underground world fraught with mystery and danger.

When the game is almost over, it appears kith and kin will not be able to rescue them. But as the final card is played, the hunters becoming the hunted, and the teens discover that perhaps dogs are not man’s only best friend.”
