When Carruthers "Danni" McAllister receives an antique pouch as a birthday gift from her grandfather, her first reaction is disappointment. "Don't assume that 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 had to discover how to access the power it holds, or suffer the penalty of using the pouch unwisely.
While Danni struggles to understand the power of the pouch, her father's discovery of a rhodium mine makes her family the target of a deadly extortionist plot, and the strange pouch is Danni's only hope of saving her family.
In the spirit of The Alliance, The Freedom Factor, and Leverage Point, author Gerald N. Lund blends gripping, fast-paced suspense with a timeless message for readers of all ages.

This book did not hold my attention until the last few chapters. It is very clean entertainment which i appreciate. I think Mr Lund should stick to writing historical novels. Not his style or best work. Very cheesy at times.

I received an advanced copy of this book and was immediately intrigued with the opening. The main character quickly ages from 13 to 16 but the rest of the book occurs in a matter of four or five days. Dani McCallister was given an old family heirloom in the shape of a weathered pouch. On her 16th birthday, it quickly becomes her most valued possession when her family is taken hostage in an extortionist plot and it may be the only thing that could save them. Little does Dani know, but the pouch posses magical powers including money creation, messages written on windows of cars in front of her, and can make her seem invisible. Will Dani and her brother Cody be able to save their parents and Grandpere? This is a great book for teens and adults to read and share.
