Once you've grabbed the pot of gold, can you still lose everything? Fate has given one man more money and prestige than he could ever hope for. Who goes to great lengths to take it all away from him? That's what Detective Chief Inspector MacLanahan and Detective Sergeant Nicholson will have to find out. As it becomes known that Elmer MacFarland is in possession of a large fortune, suspicious circumstances arise. The two detectives learn that an unknown man was in Elmer's back yard a week before he was killed. Even more mysterious — why was he hiding in a tree? The investigation into Elmer's death reveals a wealth of suspects. He was not well liked, but did they hate him enough to kill? Was his son Basil, who was infuriated by his refusal to grant him a loan, somehow involved in his murder? Or was it someone else, someone least expected?
