(The third book in the Jack Rhodes series)
A novel by

In the third of Stephen Carpenter's Jack Rhodes Mysteries, Jack, a washed-up former bestselling author, is drawn into one of the world's greatest literary mysteries: what happened to Ernest Hemingway's infamous lost manuscripts?

When Jack's friend, former FBI Special Agent Melvin Beauchamp, asks him to authenticate a short story allegedly written by Hemingway, Jack is convinced that the lost manuscripts have been found - but by whom? Intrigued, Jack takes off on a hunt for the priceless trove of papers, and the alluring, mysterious young woman who may have them.

As the two pair up on a whirlwind cross-country journey, they encounter a rogue's gallery of dangerous characters also on the hunt - a billionaire collector with a dark past, a couple of blood-thirsty mercenaries, and a twisted sociopath who will stop at nothing to acquire the priceless manuscripts.

Facing danger, intrigue, and romance, Jack is forced to confront more than just the mystery of a lifetime. He must face his own demons, his lost literary ambitions, and long-buried memories of his own painful past - all of which lead him inevitably to the book's shattering conclusion: the truth always comes with a price.
