Eric Wilder about this book: Few places in the world are as mysterious and haunted as the dark, coffee-colored waters of Caddo Lake. Formed by an earthquake, Caddo is the largest natural lake in Texas. It is the home to cypress swamps, Indian burial grounds, and giant alligators. When Oklahoma cowboy gumshoe Buck McDivit inherits an island on the lake, he investigates and soon finds he is totally out of his element. He also learns the island, and the fishing camp on it, is under foreclosure. Fighting to keep his inheritance, he becomes involved with a beautiful southern belle—daughter of the banker foreclosing on the island. And, there's the matter of a ghost, lost Confederate gold, a racist judge that wants the island for himself, and two men that don't care who they kill in order to get what they want. "Wilder's fiction is like an ice-cold Hurricane slush on a hot, Louisiana day. Read it now and take a trip to a mysterious island.
