A rather far fetched small town mystery- not without a local appeal, nearly undermines a housing project and exposes the fraudulent activities of an impostor. In Stone River, Don and Kathy, the hero and heroine of the story, are at odds over the status of the old Rosemont estate, which Don would like to see converted and Kathy, preserved. Then Oliver Melrose turns up as the estate's heir, courts Kathy, and it looks as if the old place will be saved. But Don finds, among other things, that Oliver's still making payments on his fancy Cadillac, that he faked a will,- and the jig's up. There's a good future of work and architectural school for Don with Kathy, who now understands.
