The Summons, Judge Atlee was a powerful figure in Clanton Mississippi-a pillar of the community who towered over local law and politics for forty years. He is now dying and he "summons" his two sons home, Ray and Forrest. But the judge dies too soon, and Ray finds $3,000,000 in 100 dollar bills. Aside from the sons another person knows and he is out to kill them. As hard as the boys tell the town's people they won't believe them. Ray tried all he could to hide the money, in the end his brother Forrest ends up with the money (an alcoholic and drug addict). This book was really boring in the beginning, but I kept reading to see if the ending might turn out good and it did. When the 3 million dollar appear and the killer it was a bit more interesting. 3 million dollar is a lot anyone would wish they had 3 million dollars, but having to keep it a secret could be hard. I find that being rich does not "always" lead to a happy ending.
