Paris, 1922-- Ernest Hemingway asks his young wife, Hadley, to pack up every last scrap of his work into a single suitcase and join him in Switzerland. While Hadley waits for her train in the Gare de Lyon, the suitcase containing a year's worth of Hemingway stories vanishes, never to be seen again. Until now.

Henry "Coop" Cooper is having a hard time writing his new novel between sipping rum and lounging on a Baja beach with hotel owner Grady Doyle. When Grady tries to save a drunk from two thugs, Coop tags along for the sake of a good story. The drunk is Ebbie Milch, a small time thief on the run in Mexico because he has stolen the never-before-seen first draft of Hemingway's A Moveable Feast from a wealthy rare book dealer.

The manuscript is more than just a rare piece of literary history. It reveals clues to the contents of the lost suitcase and a conspiracy wherein the then-unpublished Hemingway will go to whatever lengths to get published.

But Coop and Grady aren't the only ones with their eyes on this elusive literary prize, and what starts as a hunt for a legendary writer's lost works becomes a deadly adventure.

For Coop this story could become the book of a lifetime ...if he lives long enough to write it.
