On the eve of World War II, the coatless body of prominent publisher Benjamin Dannan is found lying in the snow beside a lonely road in east Kentucky, far from home. No one knows why he is there or how he got there, or whether his death is accident or murder. The high-profile mystery remains for thirty years until an odd chain of events leads columnist Theo Clark to a story he cannot write--the story of the Dannans and Jesse Bristow. The search takes place in the middle of Bristow's bitterly fought governor's race, and leads Theo from a remote Melungeon village and the mystery of the Lost Colony to the coal mines of Harlem County and the aftermath of The Battle At Evarts. There is a "perfect murder" to confront, a scandal to contain, and a forsaken lover to comfort. Rhody knows his place and his time well and puts the reader in both with a fast paced and riveting tale. Theo's compulsion "to make things right" leads to a disturbing, but strangely satisfying, climax.
