Page 158 Books Author Event | Scott Gates

June 16, 2022 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm


Page 158 Books is pleased to welcome local author Scott Gates for the launch of his new book GONE, THE REDEEMER at a special event held at the Wake Forest Historical Museum on June 16 at 6:00 pm.

About the Book

Thomas Sparkman wasn’t looking for trouble. He never could have imagined being on a wanted poster, let alone becoming a notorious gold robber hunted in two states. But when Thomas sneaks off the Cuban front of the Spanish-American War with his sights set on returning to his pregnant wife in California, his path takes a series of unexpected turns. He’s joined on his journey by a mysterious mercenary, a runaway circus sideshow performer, and an Apache guide and her infant son.

As the group traverses the American West, they cross paths with rogues, loners, and hired guns—some searching for their own form of redemption, some working to stop him dead in his tracks. Thomas and his travel companions must stay two steps ahead of their pursuers, outwitting them at every turn, or Thomas may never see home again.
