It's been ten years since the events that changed Johnny Merrimon's life and rocked his hometown to the core. Since then, Johnny has fought to maintain his privacy, living alone on 6,000 acres of once-sacred land in North Carolina, and his only connection to normal life is his old friend, Jack. They're not boys anymore, but the bonds remain. But in this series debut by the Edgar Award winning author of Down River and The Last Child, a woman named Cree Freemantle challenges Johnny for the rights to what she claims is her ancestral property. Landing in a lawsuit, Johnny will be tempted to sell the property, but when a realtor's body is found in these seemingly haunted swamps, even Jack's help may not be enough.
