This novel is along the lines of a whodunit, except the community recognizes an odor that, over the year, happens to drift in, and during the same time, livestock is apparently missing. The law enforcement, with reports taken, are at a loss of what it could be. Now doing a routine patrol some years later, a van that is running is found. The investigation begins. The employee is mysteriously missing from the community of Bremerton after a service check out for fiber-optic issues. Five years before, they opened up a rain forest theme park for the summer campers. While on the other side of the continent, a celebration is taking place as for the first time, the elder has lifted a lifetime ban to travel abroad.
