About this title


The Civil War brought death and ruin to the Old South, but out of the ashes there arose a remarkable legend that has intrigued treasure hunters and conspiracy buffs ever since - the "lost Confederate gold," said to have been buried somewhere in the swampy flatlands of Georgia following the fall of the Confederate government in 1865.
Now an out-of-work former dot-com executive has his hands on a set of old clues that might lead him to the fabled treasure - if only he can stay alive long enough to find it.
When Matt Rutherford's Silicon Valley dot-com firm goes belly-up, the displaced executive has nowhere else to go but home - home to Walkerville, Georgia, where, following the brutal death of his first cousin, he's been named sole heir to his elderly aunt's estate. While searching to clear his name as a suspect for his cousin's death, Matt uncovers a long-hidden family secret: he's descended from the same Southern officer assigned to guard the gold reserves following the fall of the Confederate capital in the waning days of the Civil War. Even more astonishing, he finds an old diary that reveals, through complex coded instructions, where the gold is buried.
Problem is, others know about the gold - and the old diary. They will stop at nothing to claim the treasure for themselves, even if it means murder.
Enlisting the help of Lisa Li, a beautiful Chinese-American computer expert, Matt sets out to unravel the mysterious clues - clues that eventually lead him to a top-secret nuclear weapons installation in South Carolina where he must evade a bloodthirsty killer as well as heavily-armed government agents before learning the horrifying truth behind the lost Confederate gold.
