About the Book

Elihu Leonard has acquired great wealth from his investments over his lifetime, and is enjoying life in Monomoy, at his home on Nantucket for several months of the year. His favorite grandson Samuel Leonard often visits when he finds himself the new owner of the property after his grandfather was found murdered. Elihu has left several wax sealed letters addressed to Samuel which are actually dated in a time frame after his passing for them to be opened. Some of these already have been given to Samuel by Elihu's attorney, Eileen Berg, who was a trusted friend of Elihu and his wife for many years on Nantucket. Eileen is privy to all the financial records of Elihu's and has always kept them private and locked away for safe keeping until the time arrives to disclose them to family members. One of the last letters that Samuel is given by Elihu's attorney is one that describes a book, that is supposedly hidden in the house, as Elihu discovered an old faded piece of paper that actually fell out of a desk that was left after he purchased the home many years ago, the paper was hidden in between a desk drawer and a side wall of the desk. It was dated October 31, 1922 and stated if the person who finds this letter is reading it that means a certain book is still undiscovered at the property located on the North Westerly knoll Half Mile to the left of the very beginning of Monomoy Road, parcel number 44, the old Shea Estate.
