Rare-book dealer Peter Fallon returns in a thrilling historical novel about the California Gold Rush, by New York Times bestselling author William Martin

Known for sweeping historical narratives with vivid world-building and an intricate level of detail, New York Times bestselling author William Martin is a master of his craft. Bound for Gold continues his epic of American history with the further adventures of Boston rare-book dealer Peter Fallon and his girlfriend, Evangeline Carrington.

In the mid-1800s, James Spencer of the Sagamore Mining Company kept a journal of his journey from Boston to the Mother Lode. During his search for a “lost river of gold,” he confronted vengeance, greed, and racism in himself and others, and built one of California’s first mercantile empires. When Fallon's son asks his father for help reconstructing this journal, which has been stolen from the California Historical Society, Peter and Evangeline head for modern-day San Francisco. They quickly discover that there's something much bigger and more dangerous going on, and Peter's son is in the middle of it. Turns out, that lost river of gold may be more than a myth. 

Past and present intertwine as two stories of the eternal struggle for power and wealth become one.
