When 19-year-old Tina Rutherford disappears, everyone in Chabot, Mississippi knows who is responsible. 25 years earlier the young Cindy Walker had disappeared without a trace after a date with the neighbour’s son Larry Ott.

Larry was not convicted for lack of evidence and has lived in ritualized solitude ever since. Again under suspicion, his house is increasingly the target of drunken rednecks; he is shot and the young black Constable Silas Jones is entrusted with the investigation – a shared past and a dark secret connect him with Larry.

Tom Franklin was born in 1963 in Dickinson, Alabama. In 2011 he made it onto the New York Times bestseller list with Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter.
