The quiet beauty of autumn on Mississippis Natchez Trace is swiftly shattered when Anna answers a call to Mt. Locust, once a working plantation and inn, now a tourist spot. But the man Anna finds in an old bedroom is no tourist in distress. Hes nearly naked, and very dead—his body bearing marks consistent with sex games gone awry. On a writing table nearby is an open Bible with ominous passages circled in red.
There are secrets that prominent men in this God-fearing country wish to keep under wraps—and Anna has stumbled into a nest of them.
