Plot summary

There are two plots that unfold simultaneously in this novel; one is set in the present, and deals with Bob Lee Swagger and Russ Pewtie, while the other is set in 1955, and deals with Bob Lee's father, Earl, and the events leading up to his death.

This book catches the reader up with Bob Lee about five years after the events in "Point of Impact". He now has a daughter who is four years old, named Nikki, and he has married Julie Fenn, the widow of his fallen spotter, Donnie Fenn. He is living happily, if not humbly, trying to avoid the notoriety he gained during the events in "Point of Impact".

A young man approaches him with a proposition. This young man's name is Russ Pewtie, the grown son of Bud Pewtie, who as described in "Dirty White Boys" was responsible for the death of Lamar Pye. Russ is a writer, and wants to write a book about Bob Lee's father, who was gunned down one night in 1955 by Lamar's father, Jimmy. *Clarification is needed as Lamar is described, in the page on Bob Lee, as being his half brother, to the same father.

As Russ and Bob Lee probe into the details surrounding Bob Lee's father's death, there are some startling revelations, including a conspiracy to keep these details hidden, which give deeper insight into Bob Lee's history.
