The death of a swing bridge operator is clearly no accident, and a troubled fifteen-year-old boy and the aging bridge are both under suspicion for murder. Detective Arvo Thorson is having a breakdown of his own: a drinking binge makes him all too vulnerable to his ex-wife's treacherous charms, and may put the cork in his romance with social worker Christine Ivory. Meanwhile Christine is burnt out from too many years working with Mendota County's youngest crime victims and she's ready for a change, even if that means leaving the county, and Arvo, for good.
