About The Book
Kidnapped? A 16 year-old farm boy abducted from his neighbor’s house in broad daylight? No, this hideous crime couldn’t happen in peaceful rural Indiana! A man’s corpse is found in his dilapidated house. Counterfeit money, stolen paintings, secret coded messages and international intrigue during the Second World War are all revealed as two teen-aged mechanics-turned sleuths attempt to breathe life back into an old rusted and grimy red pick-up truck. A county sheriff and an agent of the F.B.I. join forces to assist the two amateur detectives in their attempts to solve this complex mystery. Together they try to sort out the mind-boggling series of events involving an evil dentist who is a fugitive from the law, two dangerous escaped convicts and an odd pair of strange men--a seven-foot giant and a his puny partner. Will all the twisted threads of this exciting thriller be untangled so that justice can prevail? You will be enthralled as this spell-binding novel, the third in the Sam and Howie series, unfolds bringing suspense page by page.
