Can Cole find the key that unlocks a dark mystery and free his family's legacy? In Cole Dust, Cole Sage inherits a house and small farm in Oklahoma. A dusty old trunk opens up the world of the grandfather Cole never knew. From pre-World War I America to the late fifties, Cole learns of a man tormented by alcohol, racism, the Dust Bowl, the Great Depression and an addiction to gambling. As he rebuilds the old farm, Cole reads of forty years of triumphs and disgrace and a family history he's never known. Along the way, he discovers a love and pride in the man his parents tried to erase. The last volume of the George Sage's journals unlocks a secret hidden away for fifty years that will change Cole Sage forever.

About Micheal Maxwell
Micheal Maxwell was taught the beauty and majesty of the English language by Bob Dylan, Robertson Davies, Charles Dickens and Leonard Cohen. Mr. Maxwell has traveled the globe, dined with politicians, rock stars and beggars. He has rubbed shoulders with priests and murderers, surgeons and drug dealers, each one giving him a part of themselves that will live again in the pages of his books. The Cole Sage series brings to life a new kind of hero. Short on vices, long on compassion and dedication to a strong sense of making things right. As a journalist he writes with conviction and purpose. As a friend he is not afraid to bend the law a bit to help and protect those he loves. Micheal Maxwell writes from a life of love, music, film, and literature. He lives in California with his lovely wife and traveling partner Janet.
