The discovery of a tiny map in the sand at Old Hickory Lake's Party Island seems innocent enough until it draws the attention of a crew of shrewd and ruthless smugglers. When Wes Henry and sometime girlfriend Natalie Dubhe become involved in a treacherous search for the secret in the legendary map, a psychopath is uncovered living quietly in the small lake town of Hendersonville, Tennessee.
