It’s 1875 and the counterfeit business is booming. All participants of the ring are making made cash, that is until October when the Secret Service agents raid a Fulton, IL workshop and capture Ben Boyd, the best counterfeiter in the business. After his arrest, business starts to fail. After all, no one is as good as Ben Boyd and now the secret services are catching fakes left and right. The members of the counterfeit ring know that something has to be done, otherwise they’ll be out of business for good. Their plan? Steal Abraham’s Lincoln body, stash it in the sand dunes new Lake Michigan, and demand the release of Ben Boyd and $200,000 cash as ransom. And it should be a fairly easy job since the tomb doesn’t have a night guard and only had two locks to break through! Will the criminals be able to say mission accomplished or will the secret service thwart their plans?
