When thirteen-year-old Danni McAllister receives an antique pouch as a birthday gift from her grandfather, her first reaction is disappointment. "Don't assume something is empty just because there's nothing there," her grandfather warns. Danni learns that for nearly two hundred years, the mysterious pouch--with its astonishing hidden secrets--has been handed down from generation to generation, and each new owner has to discover for themselves how to access the power it holds, or suffer the penalty of using the pouch unwisely.
Three years later as Danni struggles to understand the power of the pouch, her father discovers a rhodium mine, and her parents become the targets of a deadly extortionist plot. The strange pouch is Danni's only hope of saving her family.
Gerald N. Lund blends gripping, fast-paced suspense in the spirit of The Alliance and The Freedom Factor, with an entertaining, wholesome message for readers young and old.
