In the second book of the Bob McGregor Mystery Series, the death of lawyer McGregor's friend is no accident. From his mountain hideaway above the vast tomato fields and fractious populace of Calvin County, Tennessee, McGregor descends to join the DA's homicide team, forfeiting precious writing time on his historical novel. The U-turn from novelist to detective hurls him down a dangerous road up against a philanthropic whiskey distiller, a nasty blackmailer, a murderous firebug, and a scheming car thief. But nothing detracts McGregor from the allure of local women. Sex and sexual intrigue careens him through the dark back-alley of self-deception until one captivating woman sets him on a path toward redemption and enlightenment.
