       Additional Information  
      Second in the Fluke Family series, Fluke Family Hero explores Maynerd Fluke Dumstedís career as the sheriff of his hometown.

    King Kryan Kruke now rules the Kingdom of Gnat, but he is still up to his old tricks. He schemes to rule the four lands of Gnaught by capitalizing on Maynerdís relationship to the long dead hero, Richard the Brave. The King hopes to springboard that fame to his advantage by transforming Maynerd into the new national hero.

    The chance arrivals of bad luck Fata Morgana and a young felon named Blacky further complicates Maynerdís efforts to keep the peace, but Fata may hold the keys to his heart.

    Dumsted town falls into turmoil when the local banker plots to fix the elections for Mayor and Sheriff by kidnapping the incumbents. He intends to sell them to the notorious bandits, the Moola Rude, but the plan goes awry.

    With Maynerdís only supporters locked in jail, his fate seems sealed. King Kruke has vanished and Scarface, the leader of the Moola Rude, sits on the throne of Gnat. Oh, where is a hero when a kingdom is in such grave need?

    Maynerd must save his friends and the Kingdom of Gnat from certain destruction by King Scarface or lose everything.
