Forensic geologist/FBI agent Raleigh Harmon gets assigned a blistering Civil Rights case in Richmond, VA. But the witnesses are refusing to talk. Her boss wants the case closed immediately -- without the truth -- but Raleigh refuses. Relying on her knowledge of geology and old hierarchies of the South, Raleigh uncovers the truth behind two violent deaths and the heated silence that remains.
