Release: Gold-in-Quartz, a Jewelry Hunter Thriller, by Ronald von Freymann

Jewelry thieves, a terrorist plot and a race around the globe.

These are just a few plotlines in Gold-in-Quartz, Ronald von Freymann’s latest novel since leaving the corporate world to write mystery thrillers.

“I don’t know how anyone can retire and do nothing creative,” von Freymann said. “Writing has been more than rewarding, especially when I tell my “busy” friends how I spend my time in retirement: two books published and the third less than a year out.”

In Gold-in-Quartz, a Jewelry Hunter Thriller, it has been a year since an Islamic cleric declares a fatwa against Bill and Jenn for averting a terrorist plot to blow up two fully loaded passenger ferries off the southern coast of California. Now, the Watsons must contend with another group of murderous thugs.

While on a jewelry buying trip in Northern California’s Gold Country, the Watsons inadvertently stumble into a gruesome shooting that sends them into witness protection.

But their new enemies are never very far behind. They are forced to rely on the FBI, the French police, and hefty measures of their own quick wits, intuition and marksmanship to survive.

This is von Freymann’s second installment of the Jewelry Hunter series, which grabs attention from the start with fast-paced action and crisp dialogue.

“I found writing financial plans very enjoyable so I thought writing make-believe stories could be more fun because I wouldn’t be limited to the truth or facts…it was,” said von Freymann.


“Von Freymann is the master of a unique genre.”
