    Dalton Wheeler vanished from Morning Star, Texas, nearly forty years ago under suspicion of murder, leaving behind him a trail of secrets, scandal, and lives torn apart in the wake of his reported death. The woman he loved married another, and life went on. Now, the main characters in this tragedy are all gone, and in the wake of the final man's last will and testament, the past has roared back with a vengeance. Secrets will be revealed, and the lives of four people will be shattered as they learn that who they are and where they come from is not at all what they always believed.
