Don dies and suddenly everyone, especially people who threaten Lee¿s life, wants the missing manuscript. However, it is not in Lee's discard box, it is not on his desk or in his house the manuscript, which claims to answer several of America¿s past mysteries and reveal unbelievable secrets, has disappeared. While pursued by violent men, Lee his uses ingenuity and wit to find the manuscript before the others.
