While the author has labeled this a YA book, it could easily hold its own against adult thrillers. I am very hesitant writing this review because there are some beautiful twists and I know as soon as I say that other readers will spend time looking for the twist instead of just letting themselves be swallowed by the story.
There are three large and moving parts to this book. Each has its own characters of focus and direction. The braiding of the three is well done and led me easily down the winding path – until the ledge – that I never saw coming.
I would gladly suggest the book for anyone in high school and up to age 102!

Dean Nelson had every detail of his heist planned to perfection. He’d made a flawless getaway and was patiently waiting for the right moment to dig up the money that was buried late in the night without any witnesses. Or at least any witnesses that he knew of.
Katie’s life as a park ranger is centered around one mission: protect the park. On most days the threats are nothing more than off-leash dogs and illegal campfires but one night she realizes something is afoot. Somebody has been digging in her park.
Cooper and his friends are always outrunning the police on their harmless adventures into the unknown. One night, they ended up in the right place at the right time and stumbled upon a clue that could leave them rich beyond their wildest dreams. They just have to find the treasure before somebody catches up to them.
As the three forces collide, can Cooper make it out with the cash in hand or will it cost him more than he bargained for? Is the cash worth their lives?
