Overview

Guy Driscoll thinks he’s doing the right thing by giving up his job at a Chicago newspaper to get his promiscuous daughter out of the city and into the small town life Guy knew as a child. All he does is deliver her into the line of fire of someone who’s reached the desperation point and can see only one way to maintain his standing in the community. Vernon Diest's family has tended the dead of Colson since its inception and he takes his work seriously, though Elma, his shy, thin, deaf mute step-sister has not been as well tended. Still, she adores Vernon and will do anything for him…to a point. Vernon would notice Elma if he wasn’t obsessed with gaining revenge against pretty Michael Bish, a female police officer married to a man in a coma, a fellow officer shot by his partner in what everyone in town wanted to believe was an accident. The shooter, war hero David Eulert has something in common with Vernon Diest, and he wants to join forces with him in doing something about Michael that will help both of them. Curious reporter that he is, Guy Driscoll gets in their way. He too is powerfully drawn to Michael, for a different reason, and his interest in her is about to change all their lives, some for the better, some not so much. Before it’s over the mortuary of Vernon Diest is stacked with bodies, and the tender of the dead couldn’t be happier with how things are going, but sweet adoring Elma has been making wishes on the large, white summer moons, and her wishes are about to become true in ways no one could have predicted, none of them for the better.
