The story opens in France where a rogue French agent gets a lead on hidden wealth in Canada. He's also told it's time to go into hiding from France.

In Seattle, Blake Sanders was a former college basketball player, public affairs official and family man. He overcame ADD to get where he was but lost everything in a financial scandal involving a political campaign. He still grieves over the loss of his son, to suicide. Now, he gets by from delivering newspapers.

Blake still has a very empathetic manner and his part of the story begins when he talks a woman from jumping from a bridge and committing suicide.

The last stop on his newspaper delivery route is an elderly woman who often invites him in for tea and conversation. This night, someone kills the woman and tries to pin it on Blake.

A part of the story is a bequest made to an order of nuns in the eighteen fifties. They were given land and mineral rights to the land. Now, people are trying to find more of the bequest because riches might be involved.

The author has a gift of pacing as action builds up followed by segments of needed background. There are many decent characters in the story but it is Blake who is the most sympathetic and who we want to succeed.

Readers looking for an excellent story and well written literature will be rewarded with this edge of seat thriller.
