What would you do if your happy childhood memories were shattered by murder...?
Forensic anthropology professor Mark Goodman and his bride, Carrie, are off on another adventure that they neither planned nor wanted. Mark’s sister, Anne, has informed them of an old farmhouse for sale in the North Carolina mountains, overlooking the valley where Mark and Anne spent their childhood summers with their grandparents.
But when the newlyweds check out this property, thinking they might renovate it for their summer home, matters suddenly turn deadly.
Just as Mark ducks to look down the well, a gunshot rings out and a bullet whizzes over his head. The only thing scarier for Mark is what he thinks he saw in the well.
The farmhouse belonged to two elderly sisters Mark knew as adopted aunts. But several years ago, the sisters mysteriously disappeared. Now, Mark wants to know what became of them. Is someone trying to scare him and Carrie off this property? Could clues to the sisters’ disappearance still be on the farm?
Soon law enforcement is called in, and Mark lends his forensic skills to the investigation. Suddenly, the clues lead not only to a murder case but a terrorist plot to wreak havoc on American soil.
By the time all the clues are pieced together, Mark and Carrie will not only be battling terrorists, but find themselves caught up in a power struggle between the FBI and the CIA, with implications leading all the way to the White House.
