Publisher's Summary

Two murders. One Town. And a lifetime of secrets.

The number one New York Times best-selling author of the Natchez Burning trilogy returns with an electrifying stand-alone. A tale of friendship, betrayal and shattering secrets that threaten to destroy a small Mississippi town.

Some things should never be uncovered....

When successful journalist Marshall McEwan discovers that his father is terminally ill, he returns to his childhood home in Bienville, Mississippi - a place he vowed to leave behind forever.

His family’s newspaper is failing; and Jet Turner, the love of his youth, has married into the family of Max Matheson, one of the powerful patriarchs who rule the town through the exclusive Poker Club.

Bienville is on the brink of economic salvation, in the form of a billion-dollar Chinese paper mill. But as the deal nears completion, two murders rock the town to its core, threatening far more than the city’s economic future. 

Marshall and Jet soon discover a minefield of explosive secrets beneath the soil of Mississippi. And by the time Marshall grasps the long-buried truth about his own history - and the woman he loves - he would give almost anything not to face it.

A bit long winded

Seemed very 'padded out,' with considerable repetition of ancillary parts of the story away from the main plot. Of course you have to have background, but it is unnecessary to go over the same ground several times. Also, too much titillation with descriptions of sexual trysts which were referred to again and again. Disappointing.
