Description

Eddie Porter, a professional gambler, arrived at the village of Fallston, North Carolina in 1930 with the rarest of commodities: money. He was there to investigate the prospect of buying a sprawling, run down tobacco farm. Eddie knew, at once, that he has found the place he had long been seeking. It was sound rather than site that told Eddie this. The people of Fallston had the exact same accent and voice inflections of the man he was seeking. It has taken Eddie a dozen years to find this place. After a week in Fallston, Eddie calmly bet the bulk of his fortune and the last ten years of his life on Fallston. In June of 1940, Eddie Porter was found murdered in his home in Fallston.Ten year old Jubal Scott was the first to reach the scene. Jubal caught a glimpse of Eddie's killer, before he, too was knocked unconscious and left for dead. Soon, the Sheriff of Green County, Jubal's father Mason Scott and Eddie Porter's daughter join forces to hunt for his killer. Months of sleuthing later, the trio have only a budding romance between Monica Porter and Mason Scott to show for their efforts. Tensions mount with each attempt on Jubal's life.Finally, Monica discovers a letter from her father naming John Lofton, a local, as the man who killed his friend in France during World War I. Soon after Eddie's murder, Lofton is the victim of an apparent suicide. Monica Porter's says, "Case Closed!" Mason Scott, however, remains unconvinced. The case reaches an exciting climax when Jubal Scott recognizes the real killer's picture in a newspaper. Discover how Eddie Porter's final corageous act of love changed his vengeful quest into a remarkable legacy of love.
