Cut of the Cross

Second in the Colonial City Series

Written by Robert L. Gold

When the Governor’s niece turns up dead on the shores of Spanish St. Augustine – brutalized in horrific fashion – the entire colony is frantic to find the killer. In this second murder mystery in the Colonial City Series, Robert L. Gold takes you inside Florida’s “First City” as it was in the 1780s. Follow the deceptive trail through the sandy streets, past the Castillo de San Marco, and into dense woodlands as handsome young Lieutenant Dorado Delgado hunts down a killer seemingly too cunning to capture.


“Since I so enjoyed the first book by Robert Gold, I decided to buy the second volume of this three book series as soon as it was released. This murder mystery, centering around Spanish St. Augustine, was as brilliantly written as the first. I am in awe of the authors writing style and his vividly portrayed characters. As with the first book, I found myself unable to put it down. I will now patiently wait for volume three!” – Janet via Amazon Reviews

“Dr. Gold is adept at leaving tantalizing clues to the killer’s identity that turn out to be misdirection. But an elaborate ending ties up all the loose ends and solves the crime in a most unexpected way. The book will keep you engaged and guessing — maybe you’ll figure out whodunit, but this reader didn’t. As he did in “Dead to Rights,” the first book in the Colonial Cities trilogy, Dr. Gold laces the story with fascinating details of life in the colonies and in Cuba. If you enjoy a good mystery, snappy dialog, engaging, colorful characters, historical fiction and good writing, this book has them all. Get a copy: You will be richly rewarded.” – E.W. via Amazon Reviews
