A legend of lost treasure. Nonstop action. A journey of immense danger and hidden pitfalls. In 1886 Thomas Jefferson Pealle discovered an enormous amount of gold in the Rocky Mountains. He hid and protected the treasure in a natural vault and set off home through the wild and untamed west to collect his trustworthy brothers to help him transport and sell his massive fortune. To ensure the gold wasn’t lost forever should he be killed or unable to return to the vault, he wrote a cypher for his son so he could find the family treasure. Pealle never made it home, and the location of the gold was lost. The cypher has never been decoded. Jesse Fortune is a high-end adventure tour operator and failed treasure hunter struggling to keep his life afloat. When an old flame, Sitara Avantibai, Professor of Archaeology, comes looking for help and promising new clues she claims will lead to the Pealle treasure, Jesse is pulled into a quest that takes him across the globe, deadly peril chasing him at every turn. Jesse isn’t the only one searching, and not everyone is playing fair.
