On a rare morning off from the the Pine Lake Inn Dell Powers was just looking to take in a little fresh air and exercise. Walking out in the bush in the warm November breeze she thought it couldn't be more perfect.
That is, until she came across old Arthur Loren, the resident town coot and fossicker. He was scrabbling around in the dirt like a madman muttering "Give it back" and making no sense at all.
Had he completely lost his mind? Or was something more going on?
What seemed like a routine medical issue of heat exhaustion becomes so much more as Dell, Kevin and James dig deeper into Arthur's life and the circumstances that brought him to be out in the bush at that time.
Before Dell knows it she is tangled up in a mystery that has ties to a one hundred year old murder.
