The third book in the trilogy of novels by noted Mississippi author Cleveland Payne of Laurel, featuring the adventurous Slim McCall.

Follow Slim and his beautiful Caribbean girl companion, Cherokee Valens, in their unforgettable journey,
not only into the past, but also across the Alabama–Florida Panhandle in a vintage 1961 Buick Electra—an estate gift.

In their travels, Slim learns of Cherokee’s godmother, the heroic and compassionate Kahlia St. Vincent, the story’s central character, an amnesiac and possessor of the priceless Silver Pendant—a symbol of wealth, power and possibly a key that will unlock the door to her past, and the dreams and nightmares that haunt her.

As the story unfolds, the threesome learn of a plot fashioned by the cold and sadistic Mercedes and her grifter brothers in a desperate quest against time to obtain the Silver Pendant. They are willing to torture and murder in order to possess it.

The final confrontation between Kahlia and Mercedes takes place late at night in a dark room with the prized Silver Pendant hanging in the balance.
