The trauma that drove Marshall McEwan from his hometown spurred him to become a successful journalist. But just as political chaos lifts him to new heights, Marshall is forced to return home.
His father is dying, his mother struggling, and the town is in an economic rebirth built on crimes. Marshall’s high school sweetheart, Jet, has married into one of the families that rule Bienville.
When an archeologist is murdered, the investigation is derailed by a second crime. Power broker Max Matheson’s wife was shot dead in bed, and the only suspect is Max. Max demands that his daughter-in-law, Jet, defend him.
When Marshall and Jet uncover the secret at the heart of the Matheson family, they would give anything not to face the truth.
