About the Book
An ominous chill settles over twelve-year-old Hank Baker before the news of a jailbreak threatens his safety. He is determined to stay calm and keep things normal at home but a couple of strange events wreak havoc on his resolve. Not even the discovery of new evidence in the investigation concerning the skeleton he had found close to home on the Ouachita River earlier in the summer could break the spell of bad luck following him.
While walking along the streets of Smackover, he encounters danger from an unlikely source and risks his life to find the truth behind the jailbreak, the murder of his friend’s father, and the life-threatening attacks on his family.
With the help of his best friends, Hank searches for answers to hard questions about people he once trusted. Will he gain more than he loses when the truth is revealed?
