(Wonder Lake, that is, the fictitious town of strange and mysterious goings on of late. The attractions in this sleepy town include: The Meteor, The Famous and a host of other savoury and not so savoury places and characters. The Puddle, as the locals call it, boasts around 10,000 inhabitants. It sits at the foothills of the Glass Mountain Chain a few hundred miles from Chicago. There’s only two real reasons for Wonder Lake’s whole existence: mining in the hills and chubby rainbow trout in the lake. People who live there include happy, relaxed families, bored retirees and some very dodgy types who mostly live on the wild side of town known, affectionately, as the “D.V.”, short for Death Valley. Now, as I said, Wonder Lake is a mining town. But it’s not the usual run-of-the-mill stuff we’re talking about here. This is the mother lode of mining towns. Stay tuned and you’ll find out why.)
