A Harrowing Race Against Time...

For centuries, treasure hunters have sought to uncover the infamous legend regarding a wealth of gold buried somewhere in Waterhole Branch by a notorious Spanish explorer...

But it turns out that one man may have already found it Hunter Pierce, raised in a rural area of southern Alabama, has mysteriously built a lucrative career on Wall Street. He's young. He's smart. He's ambitious. And he has his whole future ahead of him.

Then one night everything changes.

Locked in a treacherous game with ruthless killers and embroiled in a treasure hunt of epic proportions, Hunter is reunited with his two childhood friends - Brian and Camilla - who unexpectedly find themselves coaxed into this pulse-pounding adventure.

Unsure who is friend or foe, Hunter returns to Waterhole Branch--where his survival hinges on outsmarting the bad guys, masterminding an escape, and putting his trust in an unlikely source.
