Sam Garcia needs a vacation.
After a rough few years teaching high school History in the valley, all he can think about is getting out of the dusty heat, and spending a few days over at the coast, unwinding and hopefully figuring out what's next for him. When Sam calls to reserve a room at his favorite hotel, though, he is surprised by a familiar voice on the other end of the line.
As Sam makes his way to his favorite place to relax and think, he wonders in the back of his mind if there might be some chance to reconnect with her while he's there. What Sam doesn't know, though, is that something much bigger awaits him. What secrets will he find among the buildings and grounds of Hearst Castle? In a race against time and the magic of an ancient relic, Sam will have to decide who is friend and who is his enemy, and solve the puzzle to return home safely.
