Publisher's Summary

Jon Willing was just a teenager when he and his buddies Augie and Ben stole a fortune in drug money. Brazen with youth and stoned out of their gourds, they thought they had the perfect plan for getting away with it.
They were wrong.
Twenty-five years later, Jon’s marriage is in ruins, his kids are virtual strangers, and the recession has decimated his finances. When he finds Augie murdered in Vegas, Jon knows his past has risen from the grave to grab him by the throat. Now Jon Willing faces a choice: run to a paradise of wine and women and endless sunshine or confront the demons from his past and fight for what’s left of his imperfect suburban life. But is it a life worth fighting for? Hurry and decide, Jon, because the piper is coming, and he always gets paid.

A Great Suspense With Great Depth of Character

This is the tale of 3 best friends who discover what they and the world would call a great treasure. But it's ownership comes at a great price, far more than the true value of the treasure itself.

It includes the story of a bully from the boys past. A violent and angry man who learns the power of forgiveness, "The price of freedom," he says, "is high because you have to let things go."

So as you read in the editor's synopsis, the hero is forced into a dangerous game of cat and mouse in order to save himself and his family. It's non stop action with plenty of humor, but also a great deal of depth.

I loved it and so will you...

The Truth Shall Set You Free!

I enjoyed the novel, a great diversion. It held my interest from beginning to end. A story about a teenage boy and his pals stealing drug money and thought that they would get away with it. They had a good plan on how to keep the truth hidden. They did for about 30 years! and then the truth came bubbling up when the housing bubble came crashing down. There were a couple of spots where I thought the leading character made some rather stupid moves that not only got himself into grave danger but also got his teen daughter kidnapped by the folks who wanted their money back... it all came together decently in the end. The narrator did a wonderful job. I enjoyed listening to Eric Dove.
