Across the Dark by C.M. Curtis


Baker Canyon in Colorado. A place shunned by native tribes since prehistory. A place they considered to harbor evil. A place where coal has been discovered and miners labor daily to wrest it from the mountain. Hank Steadman is the foreman of a crew of miners who go deep into the bowels of the mountain one day and never come out. The one surviving miner, John Sanger, claims that Steadman took his men to the wrong part of the mine and he alone is responsible for the deaths of his men. But is Sanger’s story true, or is he lying to cover up his own sordid secret?

Half a century later, Cuthbert Sweet comes on the scene. A giant of a man, Sweet is rich and eccentric. He has inherited the old mine and stumbles onto something that could clear up the fifty year old mystery. But his cousins, the children of the sole survivor of the long ago disaster, will do anything they can to keep him from exposing the truth—anything.
