About this book

Book Summary

Bitter over the departure of Laurie, Andy's finding it hard to forgive and forget. She’s still the love of his life. He's had no contact with her at all, and he can only assume she is back in Findlay, Wisconsin serving in the number two job on the local police force. Then one day he returns to the office to find Laurie waiting for him. She’s arrested a young man for murder and though the evidence clearly called for his arrest, she believes he’s innocent. He's the son of her oldest friend and she’s come to Andy to find him representation. Andy follows Laurie back to Wisconsin where he must explore a secretive religious community that seems to hold the truth about what really happened to the deceased.
