Dr. Sara Linton left her old home of Grant Count, Georgia, after her husband, the police chief, died under complicated circumstances. Now she is back, on a personal visit, when the murder of a young woman, followed by the death of the principle suspect--while he was in jail--pull her deep into past pains, long-kept secrets, and unsolved crimes. Sara needs help, and she calls on that of state FBI investigator Will Trent, but when Will arrives he finds a wall of tight lips and cover-ups surrounding the police force. Sara has deep distrust for a particular police officer, Lena Adams--but why? In order to solve these two recent murders, Will must dig deep into these individuals' and the town's painful and vigilantly protected past.
