Two people are found hanging naked from a tree in the woods of northern Minnesota. What makes the situation particularly sensitive is the bodies are of a black man and a white woman. Lynching is the word everyone's trying not to say, but as Lucas Davenport begins to discover, the murders are not at all what they appear to be. And there is worse to come much, much worse.
