Inhaltsangabe: The old West was an incubator for gold mines that became “lost.” Most still are. An 1879 story in a San Francisco newspaper triggered a steady trickle of prospectors and speculators searching the Owens River headwaters in the High Sierra for a lost mine, with no success. Now a wizened, sixty year-old prospector, Frank; a prominent Reno woman of thirty four, Ursula; and two brothers—Mark, a celebrity, thirty six year-old geology professor at the University of Nevada, Reno; and Quid, age twenty seven and recently released from prison—become entangled in a high-tech effort to locate the elusive mine. What begins as a friendly venture becomes an adventure as brotherly love turns ugly, an earthquake upsets plans, bandits intervene, and the owner of a major Reno corporation suddenly dies. The only heir of the owner is thrust into the presidency. She discovers the enterprise is headed for bankruptcy, her family shareholders are mutinous, and her live-in partner of five years is in danger—from gold fever. Early reader's comments on the book include these: “Each of the three very different love stories is tender in its own way.” -Barbara A. H.S. Teacher, Nevada City “The book’s High Sierra adventures are the real stuff. I’ve been there.” -John W. Mountaineer, Squaw Valley “I skimmed over Ursula’s pile of family-business challenges. Later I backtracked. I discovered she was into something quite intriguing.” -Nancy S. Nurse, Seattle “Lost Pants Mine is a giant of a first novel. It has unique characters, a stimulating plot, authenticity, and many twists and turns.” -Thomas H. McNeely Wallace Stegner Fellow, Author of Ghost Horse. “The confrontations between the brothers are riveting.” -Joe C. US Marine. Football player/coach, Pennsylvania “From blackjack to black holes in the earth to blackmail to brides. Terrific.” -Joan K Artist, Phoenix “I’ve read all seven of Brandt’s books, both non-fiction and fiction. The cadence of his writing style is always crisp and engaging.” -Ray L. Entrepreneur, NYC “A thriller in disguise.” -Don S. U.S. Army, World “I was left hanging at the end. What’s with the skeleton? And where’s Quid?” -Bart P. Superior Court Judge, Silicon Valley, CA “Gold’s actual rise in market price during the novel is true and adds urgency to both the romances and the approaching bankruptcy. Hard to stop reading.” -Stu F. Bank CEO, Sacramento “A joy to read. Such variety. I kept wondering, ‘What next?’ and kept going.” -Suzy S. Hi Tech Graphic Artist, Chicago “Strong people drive a complex story that runs from California’s Lake Tahoe and Deadman Pass to Reno’s corporate boardrooms, casinos, and University. As each person pursues his or her destiny, the pages keep turning.” -Eddy Starr Ancinas Author of Tales from Two Valleys—Squaw Valley & Alpine Meadows Lost Pants Mine: Gold, Love, Adventure is structured into forty-nine numbered chapters and nine named parts. Part I Gold Fever Part II The Search Part III Shades of Love Part IV Living on the Edge Part V Second Thoughts Part VI Forks in the Roads Part VII Blackmail Part VIII Family Matters Part IX The Skeleton The book is in 12 pt. type for easy reading. The page total is 452.

From Kirkus Reviews: “A geologist finds gold-mining adventure in Brandt’s debut novel. Mark Mackenzie, a rising geology professor at the University of Nevada, Reno, has a beautiful young lover named Ursula Sadler, heiress to the Sadler Corporation, long a Reno institution. Frank Adams, an old prospector with whom Mark has become friendly, thinks he can find the legendary Lost Pants gold mine, located, he thinks, near the headwaters of a river on the east side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. “I need your help to pull it off,” Frank tells Mark. “I’m too damn old to go it alone, and I am essentially broke. The story of my life.” So he, Mark, and Mark’s flaky younger brother, Quid, traipse into the High Sierra in search of it. Mark wants to get and sell enough gold so he’s no longer intimidated by Sadler money; Frank wants to satisfy his belief that the mine actually exists; Quid just wants money, lots of it. They locate the Lost Pants—or, anyway, some abandoned mine—and find “free” (unbound) gold lying about, some old tools, and a skeleton. Then three banditos show up, though Quid gets the drop on them and sends them packing (we haven’t seen the last of them). Winter sets in, and an earthquake shakes things up. The trio goes back and forth, hoping some research will help their mission. Meanwhile, old Reinhold Sadler dies, so Ursula takes charge and has to save the shaky Sadler enterprises, at which point the narrative action swings between dangerous gold mine and tense boardroom. Details about gold mining and business maneuvering show Brandt at his best. Does it all work out in the end? Mostly, though Brandt leaves some questions unanswered: where did Quid and his latest girlfriend fetch up? Whose skeleton was that? Was the mine, in fact, the Lost Pants, and was it really salted? In the crowded plot, unnecessary details pop up—Goldman Sachs, readers are reminded, is “a multinational investment firm”—and word choice can be off target. But this is more entertainment than serious novel, and the story moves at a smart pace while delivering some solid thrills. A promising start . . .” — Kirkus Reviews
