The Bootlegger’s Legacy
A treasure hunt for lost millions hidden by a bootlegger in the 1950s, whose unlawful past haunts his family even after his death. The bootlegger’s son, Mike Allen, and his best friend, Joe Meadows, are both looking for a way to change their troubled lives–they need money and to rediscover a sense of meaning. The search begins with a cryptic letter left by the bootlegger father. It is full of clues and hints on the hidden treasure, but also vague and mysterious about howto find the treasure. Mike and Joe embark on a journey through three states and fifty years of history. What they find goes beyond money and transforms them both. New relationships are formed; old ones die; nothing remains the same.
