On a gorgeous ealry summer morning in the small upstate college town of Greenbury, New York, Peter Decker is called to investigate some vandalized mailboxes on a rural street. Searching for evidence of adolescent mischief in the leafy woodlands adjacent to an empty vacation home, he discovers a body, the victim dead from a blow to the back of the head. The vicitm, twenty-six-year-old Brady Neil, was a resident of the neighboring town of Hamilton, had no criminal record, few friends, worked full-time, and attended community college. But Decker soon learns that the young man has past links to a brutal crime. When Brady was a boy, his father, Brandon Gratz, was convicted of robbing and killing the owners of a local jewelry store. While Gratz and his partner, Kyle Masterson, admitted to the robbery, they swore they left the owners, Glen and Lydia Levine, alive. There was only one witness--the couple's son, Gregg--and his testimony put the criminals away. A cop for thirty-five years, Decker knows there's more to this new homicide case than the records show. To dig deeper, though, he needs the Hamilton PD's cooperation to access their files. In return for their help, Decker must take on a temporary new partner, Hamilton PD cop Lenora Bacccus--who happens to be the Hamilton police chief's daughter. Is Lenora a young detective eager to learn from an experienced mentor, or a spy reporting back on every step of the investigation? Decker can't be sure about her motives, especially since the Levines' murder conviction was the breakout case for Lenora's father, Victor Baccus. Decker suspects that Brady Neil's death may be connected to his father's sins, especially when one of Brady's friends goes missing and his home is the scene of a gruesome bloodbath.
