Small town detective, Noah Cordin, must solve the burglary-turned-homicide of a three-year-old boy in an affluent suburb of Meskada County. Following his instincts and a tiny shred of evidence, Noah
crosses district lines to Caswell, where he grew up, where times are tough and questions are not welcome. When Noah's investigation brings about nothing but more suspicion, local politics threaten the survival of every Caswell resident by halting plans for a new factory that would create hundreds of much needed jobs and save their town. The dead boy's mother, Allison Conner, sits on the Meskada County Board of Commissioners and will not rest until the killer is brought to justice even if she takes the entire town of Caswell with her. Noah must expedite his investigation by any means possible as the two towns collide and the truth is forced into the light.
