Publisher's Summary

Hank Mitchell thought he lived an ordinary, ordered life. Happily expecting their first child, Hank and his wife Sarah were headed for their next modest step up the ladder, comfortably nurturing a nest egg in a suburban community near the tiny Ohio crossroads where Hank and his brother Jacob were raised.But on one chilly afternoon, Hank, his brother, and Jacob's unsavory pal Lou make a discovery that offers a chance for a life filled with riches beyond their wildest dreams. And in a fateful moment, Hank lays a plan to claim that life - and the horrific crumbling of his ordered world begins.

Tightly-wrapped In a Neat Package

This is the story I return to again and again when I get frustrated with other long-winded and meandering audio books. Concise, clever and believable. I wish I could find 20 more like it!

This book got me hooked right away. I've listened to it twice now, several years apart. it loses nothing the second time around. A story of greed and messed up morals. Got me thinking... what would I do in the same situitation..... I found myself believing the reader WAS the main character. Check this one out, you won't be sorry.
