Description - Foolish Undertaking by Mark de Castrique

The night before a funeral that will thrust the mountain town of Gainesboro, North Carolina, into the national spotlight, the body is stolen from the embalming room and funeral director Barry Clayton is knocked unconscious. Ouch. How will Clayton & Clayton deal with the relatives of Y'Grok Eban, the Montagnard hero who aided US troops during the Vietnam War, or the U.S. Senator, three-star general, and famous Hollywood star en route to Y'Grok's service? Barry's friend, Sheriff Tommy Lee Wadkins has a very personal interest in the missing Y'Grok-the Montagnard had saved his life. So does the Boston detective who also owes his life to Y'Grok and received a death-bed summons from the cancer-stricken old man: "Raven has come home." The three men pledge to crack Y'Grok's code, recover not just the body but a piece of a long-buried past, and deal with new death and betrayal. Is it a heroic or a foolish undertaking? Mark de Castrique is a television and film producer whose work has earned Emmy, Clio, and Telly awards. He grew up in the mountains of North Carolina and earned degrees from UNC-Chapel Hill and UNC-Charlotte. He has served as an Adjunct Professor at the North Carolina School of the Arts School of Filmmaking and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
