A New York Times Bestselling Author
John Rothstein is an iconic author who created Jimmy Gold, but he hasn’t published a new novel in years. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books, but because the nonconformist Gold has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his safe of cash. But the real treasure is notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel. Morris hides the money and the notebooks before he is locked away for another crime. Decades later, a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that must be rescued from the vengeful Morris when he’s released from prison after thirty-five years.
