The book begins with a exciting prologue in Golden Branch, Oregon 1976. FBI agent Headly, and other ATF agents are engaged in an ambush attack on a house in the middle of woods where a group of vigilantes called The Rangers of Righteousness and their leader Carl Wingert are present. After the attack nearly all the vigilantes are dead but Carl Wingert and his lover, Flora Stimel have escaped. As the crime scene is investigated, on. the mattress is blood and amniotic fluid.

Main character, Dawson Scott is a tall, handsome and well known journalist who returns home after nine months in war torn Afghanistan. Out of the blue, he is summoned by his godfather Gary Headly, soon to be a retired FBI agent to go to Savannah, Georgia and cover the trial of a man accused of killing his wife and lover, former Marine Captain Jeremy Wesson. Initially Dawson is reluctant but eventually agrees when Headly tells him that DNA of Jeremy matches the DNA of the DNA found on a mattress from the Carl Wingert's hideout in 1976.

When Amelia, Jeremy's ex-wife appears in court Dawson suddenly becomes more interested in the case. He then follows Amelia to her beach house in Saint Nelda's island where she is spending the summer with her young sons, Grant and Hunter and their young nanny Stef. He befriends them and another elderly neighbor Bernie. After a storm in which Stef turns up dead and Dawson is suspected of killing her.

This was a good book, but I was glad when it was finished. I loved the unexpected twists and turns, but not the sappy romance. ( )
