When Henry arrives in Evan's hometown, there's no sign of the girl anywhere. Evan's brother Carson, sheriff and chief proponent of the law, claims to know nothing. Carson's behaviour becomes increasingly intimidating, and in a town marred by mysteries and fear it seems there's no one around willing to help.
But Henry Quinn cannot break his promise. He swore to find the girl, and he will not give up - no matter what terrible, shattering secrets he may unearth.
