A flickering light in a barn that has been vacant for over a century draws Norma Jean to investigate and pulls her into her third mystery.“Do you need some help?” Was I crazy? My heart began to pound and I realized how vulnerable I was. What did it matter what they were doing in the barn? Margaret was correct. It wasn’t my business.I felt myself freeze, wanting to get back into the truck and not able to move. With a great effort I lunged back and had just slammed the door when I saw a figure silhouetted on the passenger side of the truck. . .A young character, Julie Farnsworth, steps into the picture. She is in Herpel to fulfill a promise made to her dying uncle.In the midst of it all, the old ways, folklore and slower pace of the area wind their way into the story, with the same familiar country folks helping and hindering the investigation.The two ladies go a merry-go-round of mystery involving a civil war gold run through Arkansas. What seems to be obvious in the beginning turns upside down several times before Norma concludes this one.
