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.
