The small East Texas town of Coreyville is shaken by brutal murders and kidnappings, striking too close to home for Greg Tenorly. And the only witness is a mentally ill neighbor whose remarks are rejected by the police as gibberish. But Greg listens carefully to the manâ€™s seemingly incoherent statements, and later realizes that they just might contain enough clues to point him in the direction of the killer.
But his investigation leads him into a hornetâ€™s nest of dark secrets, old grudges, jealousy, and greed. Now, caught in the crossfire between two families, Gregâ€™s life is in serious jeopardy.
By morning, more bodies will be headed for the morgue. The only question is whether Greg Tenorly will be among them.
