(PRLEAP.COM) Salvaged Secret, a new book by Chris Dieterich, has been released by RoseDog Books.

The 1962 Cadillac, rusted and dirty, is buried deep within the mountain salvage yard. Although there are hundreds of old cars left in this yard to die, this one is alive and waiting. Waiting for someone to discover a tale of mystery and murder that spans over forty years.

Jeff Ferguson, an ex-college football player, feels about as "broken down" as the cars he now appraises at his job at the Optamum Insurance Company. Jeff, once on the fast track to play football for the NFL, was at the top of his game until an injury stole his dreams of fame and fortune away in an instant. For Jeff, this was devastating. The prospect of living without the attention and excitement of his sports career, has led to nothing but chronic alcohol binges, daily depression, and the eventual numbness to life itself. Until a strange turn of events, where fate has now given him the opportunity to engage in the most strange and provocative puzzle of small town corruption, murder and mayhem, unraveling a series of clues and events that rival any football formation.
