What is the summary of this specific fiction work? Rod Campbell loved to go tubing with his friends down the lazy river outside of town. They often wondered about Snake Island as they drifted by.
They raced off the island. The next day they learned that the richest man in town was missing. Police suspected murder.
Please include the excerpt and include page numbers as reference. The excerpt can be as short or as long as you prefer. From page 7 - Someone killed the richest man in town, and everyone was sure who did it. What happened in Bedford put this little community smack in the center of national news for the entire country. But before that happened, the world had pretty much forgotten about this sleepy little place after the Interstate went in outside of town. Unless a person actually grew up there, few outsiders even knew it existed. These days, about the only people who come through are either lost, broken down, or out of gas. And even though the town might be small, compared to many others, it still had the county courthouse, jail, and sheriff’s department right in the center of town.
