A Local, South West Florida setting, Murder, Romance, Kidnapping, Gold, Betrayal and above all, Justice. Proving that fate always fulfills itself regardless of who interferes.  Captain Walker writes of historically documented events and suggests an alternative outcome, producing a mystery that asks the question; Is the history we’ve been taught the truth or is this the true story?

The pursuit of gold extracts a heavy price, even more so once it’s found. Discover what textbooks left untold. Ruthless Spanish explorers lay waste to the Indians of South America and war with the Florida Calusa. History states the encounters were diplomatic by nature or was it purely, Southern Greed?

Now, jump ahead 497 years into today’s time. Fall in Love with Beth and Curt. Solve the Riddle of the Old Fisherman. Will it reveal the location of the lost shipment of Spanish Gold? With guns blazing, be part of the rescue. Identify the Psychopathic Killer and stop the murders.
Remember: For Those Obsessed by Greed, Justice will come.
