1981. He pulled Jeanine Becker into the car by her hair and left her dead in a barren field. Twenty-one years later, the case still cold, the family determines to find him, but how? Will the lead detective acquiesce to their pleas and reopen the investigation? If not, will taking action into their own hands prove too risky? Does the voice from a "thin place" portend a treacherous path to their goal? Unbeknownst to them, Jeff, brother of James and Jack, has returned to Willis. To reconcile his conscience for dark deeds done, he plots to confront the man he believes committed the heinous act. As Billy, Brenda, and Martin mourn the anniversary of Jeanine's death, a chain of events links to the killer. One woman, Lola, seeks safety from abuse; one child, Jimmy, fights to discern difference between right and wrong; and Lily Rose, now sixteen, teeters on a desperate fall into womanhood. As crows gather and their caws echo, intents collide and alliances build. Sensing his days of freedom may be numbered, the killer chooses to wreak more havoc before he flees. In a rain of autumn leaves beneath the full moonlight, synchronicities work in the killer's favor. Over the course of three short but harrowing days, parties join forces to bring him to justice, but will his own clever and devious plans prevail?
