In the small town of Lark Texas, the beaten and bloated body of a black lawyer from Chicago is found in a small creek. Four days later the body of a local white woman is found in the same creek. Are the murders connected? The local sheriff thinks the black man was robbed for his fancy BMW and accidentally drowned and as for the white woman that’s still to be determined. However, Darren Mathews a black Texas Ranger thinks the murders are connected and returns home to investigate. Racial tensions rise, deeply buried secrets are revealed and time is running out for Ranger Mathews to piece this all together. Author Attica Locke has perfectly woven together a thriller about race, love, betrayal, and justice in this page turner story set in East Texas.
