Twombly and Golden County's past and present collide when an archeological team uncovers a buried house that vanished without a trace during a record flood in 1844. When two mummified bodies are found inside, and it's clear that a murder was committed, the archeological team sponsored by Twombly College to discover the Sutton House is replaced by the police. Who killed whom and why?
At first the old murder is merely interesting, but then moonshine is added to the cocktail as the old illegal liquor trade has also reappeared and is seeping into Golden County. Teens are the ones drinking it -- and murder is the result.
Will ‘Miss Marple’ Emory and her 'Nancy Drew' sidekick Madison be able to sort myths and rumors from facts to solve both cases before someone else dies?
