Jake Crosby has traded in a stockbroker’s suit and tie for a standard-issue uniform. As a newly minted Mississippi game warden, he has two tough cases to cut his teeth on—the ongoing robbery of wealthy hunters and the ruthless search for a rumored hidden fortune.
According to local gossip, several million dollars have been missing since the conviction of local conman Bronson Bolivar, and following his death in prison, his two grown children have torn his property apart looking for the funds. As Jake searches for the robber who targets well-to-do outdoorsmen, he finds a trail leading to the Bolivars. But the allure of quick cash also draws unexpected interest from both Bronson’s former cellmate and an upstanding federal judge. Will Jake understand the severity of the situation in time or get caught up in a web of deceit?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is better than any movie. Everyone in the story is larger than life and perfectly depicted. While most of the motivation revolves around greed, the humor of the many ludicrous situations is riotous. The plot would not be out of place in an opera. Cole captures the feel and atmosphere of the old south without impacting the action. Everything in the book is great fun, with more than one twist to catch the reader. Well worth buying for a number of re-reads.
