Life is good for Webb Sawyer. Until he gets hit over the head in the Nags Head Pier parking lot. Until a mercenary from Columbia, and three of the Columbian’s friends try to kill him and burn down his house at Blue Heron Marsh. Until his son goes missing while trying to track down the killer of a university professor, a murder for which his son Preston is under suspicion.
When Webb and Preston’s girlfriend, Sunshine Bledsoe, work together to discover what happened to Preston, what they discover goes far beyond the professor’s murder.
