Synopsis: "Come home Boy, I got Cancer, Kill me." It was his father's voice, a thing he hadn't heard in twenty years.
So begins Portisville, a story of love and betrayal, mystery and murder. Jimmy Wills knows he won't do what Truman Wills has demanded, but he finds himself drawn to the place of his birth by forces he isn't quite able to name.
He discovers the town is remarkably the same. But in the course of his short visit, Jimmy begins to uncover disturbing secrets from the past, including the truth about his mother's murder. Truman was charged with the killing, but he was acquitted and the crime has remained unsolved.
The murdered woman still haunts the dreams of her son, who was taken away at fourteen and raised by an aunt in North Carolina. Jimmy has tried since then not to think too much about his father, this hard and bitter man who had never once called him on the phone until his eerie demand to be killed.
But when Jimmy pulls up to his father's house, rundown now and set deep in the woods, the two men slowly begin to reconnect, with all of the promise and tragedy that entails.
