A cypher, an old feud, and a body hastily buried in the woods push Rona and Johnny into a hunt for treasure and a deadly game of hide-and-seek with a killer determined to unearth a cache…or bury them.
Finding a large hole on one's property is one thing; finding a body in it the following day is quite another.
Rona and her ex-husband, Johnny, also discover a sheet of paper at the gravesite, symbols looking like code or treasure hunting glyphs. What's it mean? Does it have any bearing on the man's death?
Add to this mix the old Finley-Tennet feud and an elderly Finley's nebulous recollection of James/Younger outlaw days. Does she have the clue to the cache's location?
When a second death pushes Rona and Johnny into a deadly game of hide-and-seek with the killer, she learns—nearly too late--just how deeply Johnny still loves her.
