Doubleday (1984)

The only clue is a bracelet, with the burnt carving of a hunchbacked flute player etched into the weathered copper. It is just a rumor, but to Mack McLaine, a down-on-his-luck country singer, it sounded like the Holy Grail. From the splendor of Santa Fe to the dusty wastelands of El Dorado and the dark heart of the American Dream... Money Mountain explores the struggle of four men to be rich beyond imagination, no matter what the price.



“A gripping and suspenseful story...while it bears comparison to The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and Deliverance, Magnuson is his own man and this is a chilling, original work.”
