In a minimalist style reminiscent of Hemingway and a voice like Sam Spade, investigative journalist Alan Meriwether narrates a story from his files.
In 1977 in rural South Georgia an interview with a convicted arsonist and murderer leads to a personal and highly dangerous vendetta to prove the innocence of the mentally challenged young convict. Others try to stop Meriwether at any cost.
