Pint-sized alias Jesse Phillips drifts into a small West Texas town in 1938. A yard care operator, he lives in quiet anonymity. Connecting a 1942 Pennsylvania slaying to a 1937 horrific Indiana murder, police close in on fugitive suspect Jesse while revengeful killers race to track him down. History-woven, bone-chilling episodes cross Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
