Alaska State Trooper Robert Sable investigates a serial killer who uses stealth and carbon monoxide to kill alumni from the Chugach High School class of 2000 and their families. So far, all the deaths have been ruled accidental. It appears the killer is exacting revenge for bullying and abuse in high school. The killer leaves minimal evidence, only a tiny smiley face with the number 2000. Since Sable’s wife is a 2000 graduate, she may be next on the killer’s list. Sable and his team must catch the killer before he strikes again.
A prospector’s body is found near the railroad tracks south of Fairbanks. At the miner’s cabin, Alaska State Trooper Sergeant Robert Sable finds two bodies slumped over a table in pools of blood. While investigating the crime scene, he finds several hundred thousand dollars in gold nuggets hidden under the base of the prospector’s fireplace. Rumors fly that the prospector had found the Dutchman, a mine of myth, legend and a curse. Over the last hundred years, many men had died trying to find the mine. Those who did find it ended up dead, and the mine would be lost again. The killers close in on the mine’s location, and as Sable follows the clues, they lead him closer to the killers and mortal danger.

As Sergeant Robert Sable starts his investigation, he finds a similar trend across the lower 48 states. It seems that Alaska now has another serial killer.
