Her veneer was big city...
But one look and you knew that Toni Raselle's instincts were straight out of the river shack she came from.
I watched her as she toyed with the man, laughing, her tumbled hair like raw blue-black silk, her brown shoulders bare. Eyes deep-set, a girl with a gypsy look. So this was the girl I had risked my life to find. This was the girl who was going to lead me to a buried fortune in stolen loot...
After Tal Howard returns home from a Korean prisoner-of-war camp, he can't help feeling that something's missing. Desperate for a thrill as much as a big payday, Tal heads for the sleepy village in upstate New York where, a dying pal once assured him, buried treasure awaits...if Tal can find the girl who can lead him to it. But there's another stranger in town, a man Tal recognizes instantly: Earl Fitzmartin, a cold, mysterious loner who terrorized him and the other POWs. Somehow Earl got here first. And now this psychopath is watching Tal's every move - and waiting to strike.

I'm new to pulp fiction and, while the plot had some familiar, overused elements, I did enjoy the story.
The reader was excellent, wonderfully matched to the material. I could believe he was telling his own story.
