For five heart-churning days, the world turns its attention to tiny Pridemore, Missouri, where rescue teams work around the clock to free a mentally challenged man from a collapsed cave. That's how Mayor Roe Tolliver envisions it, anyway. Weary of watching the town he's led for more than forty years slide into economic oblivion, the mayor hatches a devious and dangerous plan. Over the course of a year, the mayor and his cronies carry out the convoluted scheme, which involves everything from bilking state money for a bogus tourist attraction to hiring a militia "ballistics consultant" to detonate the limestone cavern. Their success hinges on unassuming pawn Digby Willard, whose simple-minded likeability provides human interest in the made-for-television crisis. Get ready for a fast-paced romp filled with quirky characters, hilarious twists and turns, and a small town that just might get its fifteen minutes of fame.
