In the confusion that followed, the keys to the vault’s safe-deposit boxes were lost.In the years since, Cleveland’s wealthy businessmen kept the truth buried in the abandoned high-rise. The ransacked offices and forgotten safe-deposit boxes remain locked in time, until young engineer Iris Latch stumbles upon them during a renovation survey.

    I enjoyed this book. Mostly when going back in the past. I thought the character's were lots more entertaining than the present, as she was a drunk that smoked like a freight train. If your trying to quit, skip it or "smok'em if you got'em"...Right Marge! lol.. I too have a man's job (asphalt laborer) and live in Ohio making the story hit home. l thought at times it was repetitious. All in all great listen with a good ending! Looking forward to Pulley's next book. Hope it's scary good! Narrator is awesome, outstanding performance!!!!????
