As twisted as the politics that scandal- ize a town and as simple as the rolling North Carolina countryside, Maron's story is a tale of blackmail, family ties and murder that unfolds at a leisurely pace.

As uncontrolled growth threatens to choke up the North Carolina countryside Judge Deborah Knott calls home, corrupt county commissioners
use their political clout to make advantageous deals with dirty developers. When a commissioner turns up dead, a suspected suicide, Deborah and her husband, sheriff's deputy Dwight Bryant, are thrust into the middle of a dispute that could cost the good judge her life.
