Read full description of the books:
If a poll were taken, I wonder how many of us could confirm that they had passed tests of honesty. You know those little tests. A twenty dollar bill found laying about somewhere and you know who left it there, A found wallet, fat with cash or a purse left sitting on a display table while you were shopping.
I remember finding a twenty dollar bill laying in the ditch, when I was just a kid. Of course I gave it to my parents, not even fully aware yet of the real value of my find. I’m sure they kept it, but much later in life an interoffice envelope ( remember those) was left in my mail slot, mine being the last name added. When I opened it I knew immediately that someone had inadvertently sent me the cash collected from a hockey pool. Hell I wasn’t even in it. There must have been somewhere over a hundred dollars in there. I wasn’t really sure who was collecting that week, but a couple of questions later and the die hard hockey fans steered me in the right direction and the envelope made its way back into the right hands.
But as I said these are little tests, how I wonder would I respond if the payoff was a lot bigger?
Well Hank Mitchell, his brother Jacob and Jacob’s friend Lou are given just that opportunity when they accidently come across a small aircraft that has crashed in the woods on the outskirts of their Ohio community. On further inspection they find a dead pilot and a duffle bag containing 4.4 million dollars. Snow is expected to fall over the next few hours effectively covering their tracks. They could take the money and no-one would be the wiser. As an added precaution they agree that they won’t spend any of it right away but instead wait and come spring, once the plane is discovered and after all the hullaballoo dies down they can split it equally and take off for parts unknown. If at any point they feel that they are at risk of being discovered they will simply burn the money. No harm no foul.
A simple plan right. What could possibly go wrong?
Scott Smith is here to answer that question and he does so brilliantly. The story is told through the perspective of Hank, the keeper of the cash. Can he trust Jacob and Lou who both drink too much and are out of work, to stick to the plan and keep the secret?
Through Hank’s narration the reader is privy not only to what happens next but also Hank’s mind set as time passes and doubts and anxieties increase among the principal party of three who by this time number five as Hank has told his wife and Lou his girlfriend.
Watching what plays out over the course of the next few weeks from the comfort of my armchair is like watching a train wreck. You simply cannot look away.
I’ll not say anymore. Trust me let Scott Smith tell you this story. He does so very well.
