Life of The Impersonators: Collector's Edition by Golden November takes you on another fast-paced action drama. One day, when Flower Rose and her son Eric are restocking their bookstore, Flower Rose gets an unexpected visit from her mom, Lucille, and her oldest brother, Thorpe. The last time Flower Rose saw her brother was back in seventh grade and no one knew where he was. Thorpe is the type of guy who always moves around, and his appearance is no ordinary visit. It is a visit that will make Flower Rose call in a favor from the book hunters, G and JBT. Everything has something to do with a map that will point to the buried Milestoneville gold hidden deep within the Milestoneville mountain mine. How they are going to get inside the mine is the multimillion-dollar question that sets off this book’s page-turning adventure.

Life of the Impersonators proves that a dialogue-driven narrative can provide as much fun and action as your traditional prose fiction. Golden November, in his ability to address ideas with an economy of words, gives you an exhilarating and refreshing feeling as you trek with the treasure hunters. Flower Rose at her advanced age may not be the heroine with the physical prowess that we expect, but she has the smarts and the connections to delegate perilous tasks. The bigger question, however, is will they ever find the gold? And this is what sets the Milestoneville Series apart from other fiction. November has his own way of giving a twist—a kind of plotting that is out of the box. It is the type of event that you least expect, and it sets the story arc into full force. Life of The Impersonators is a good choice for anyone for its sharp humor without resorting to language that will make you horripilate.
