""Today was the day. The one Packard had been dreading. He had suspected it might be coming for some time, but he had hoped it would never actually get here."" And that day proves to be the catalyst for the recollection of events that leads to the revelation of long kept secrets-mysteries that will jolt awake the little town of Hardly Hill. Seemingly unrelated tales of pirates, secret tunnels, drugs, a kidnapping, and a police shoot-out all turn out to be confoundedly ensnarled in L. A. Shute's first novel Hilltop House. Their untangling reshapes the face of the small community and returns a measure of self-esteem to a lonely old resident of the elder care facility there.
