Unsuspecting Goodwill workers in Maine received a donation that took them by surprise. Turns out, a pretty basic looking book actually had a gun inside.
The donation appeared to be a copy of 'Den of Lions,' a memoir by kidnapped Associated Press journalist Terry Anderson, but an employee called the police because the book "didn't feel right."
That's because there was a .31-caliber gun nestled inside the hollowed-out book.
