About the Event
Old Money and the Timeless Quest for TreasureDeath creeps into Bishop Hill under the cover of darkness and leaves a young man’s body near the cemetery. Shelley Anderson, a recent graduate of Knox College, is the first suspect and must redeem herself in the eyes of the law and her best friend, whose fiancé is the victim of the fatal attack. Bishop Hill a former communal society, a focal point of Swedish immigration in the 1800s, teems with tales of strange creatures, buried treasure, moonshine outlaws. The new century brings the promise for even greater riches and a new class of opportunistic thievery for the modern con artist. The clues are complex and tangled up in the stock market crash and the Great Recession of 2008. Shelley’s clever plan concocted to ensnare the murderer gets sidelined by arson, kidnapping, and a wild nighttime chase along Henry County’s backroads. Find out how Shelly and her new posse of friends track down the leads and solve the case.
