At hand is a deadly reckoning. After eight years in a Georgia prison, hardcore inmate Manny Lee Smith is returning to Blackwater. He’s after a quarter million he left behind. Brutal Sheriff Will Josey is lurking in the shadows, waiting. He wants what Smith stole from him—even if he has to put him down like the mongrel dog he is.
Since the tragic death of her husband, Summer Swann and her young son, Joey, are struggling for survival. They are about to lose their home. Just when things couldn’t get worse, her world is torn asunder through a series of seemingly random events. Their lives hang in the balance, and she will see her son step into a man’s shoes.
Mitch Calloway is content to work, have his lunch under a shade tree, and sit on the front porch at night—alone. When he befriends Joey and meets his mother, his life changes. Suddenly, he feels like the shine on a new dime. But a violent storm is approaching, and it threatens to tear his new world apart and rip the fabric of his very soul.
And there is a wild card: the old man who steals children in the night. Together, they all will find their destinies.
