The Marinolli Treasure by Hal Lewis


The Marinolli Treasure by Hal Lewis

In 1909, all Honus Wagner baseball cards were destroyed, but not before a young orphan named Joey Marinolli could stash away an entire uncut sheet of them for his family to find by surprise several decades later. In 2007, one such card sold for more than $2.3 million, so you can imagine what mayhem and madness ensue when powerful elements compete to get their hands on a whole sheet of them! The Marinolli family is trying to sell their unexpected treasure to rescue the orphanage where their ancestor was raised, but only if they can survive long enough! Follow attorney Chuck Evans as he narrates the journey in his unique Malenglish (Male English) voice full of movie quotes, music trivia, sports facts and other hilarious antics. The ultimate choice he faces is deciding between obtaining the treasure and saving his girlfriend's life...and the outcome may shock you. The book is like a Carl Hiaasen novel -- sort of a Fletch solves The DaVinci Code type work -- so it's a great read for everyone!
