“Jack Slater purchases ninety acres of remote riverfront property for a weekend getaway. Deep in the dense forest he discovers the remains of an old cabin. Eager to learn more about its history, he unwittingly rekindles interest in a forty-year-old cold case against the man who built it.
Many believe Vernon Moss pulled off the perfect heist, while others insist he was murdered by his vengeful accuser, leaving behind a hoard of stolen cash hidden in the rugged terrain near his cabin. New revelations will stun the entire community, but only a few will ever know the final, shocking twist.”
