Deep in the woods of Cottonmouth Creek, about forty-five miles northwest of the town of Peachland, Texas, lies the buried treasure...the innocent victims of a group of baseless serial killers.Meanwhile, in downtown Peachland, sixteen-year-old Alan Sherwood is eating lunch with his younger brothers: Ian, Evan, Ethan, and Axton, his best friend, Cameron Vasquez, and Ian's friend, Jude Nguyen. And they've got a mysterious map...a map that Jude took from a time capsule...a map that leads to the buried treasure.By the time their treasure hunt ends in horrific disaster, the boys have learned the truth about Cottonmouth Creek...and the killers there, who will do anything they can to keep the truth a secret.Now the boys' faith in God is put to the ultimate test, in a story about brotherhood. A story about friendship. A story about survival. A story about good versus evil, self-defense versus vigilantism, choice versus fate, and the venomous Texas swamp snakes known as cottonmouths....And a story in which not everyone will survive the day.
