Summary
Adam Chase has a violent streak, and not without reason. As a boy in Rowan County, he saw things that no child should see, suffered wounds that cut to the core and scarred him. The trauma left him passionate and misunderstood--a fighter. After being narrowly acquitted of a murder charge, Adam is hounded out of the only home he's ever known, exiled for a sin he did not commit. He disappeared for five long years. Now he's back and nobody knows why. But Adam has his reasons. Within hours of his return, he is accosted and beaten, confronted by his family and the woman he still holds dear. No one knows what to make of Adam's return, but when bodies start turning up, the small town rises against him, and Adam again finds himself embroiled in the fight of his life--not just to prove his innocence, but to reclaim the only life he's ever wanted
Summary
Five years after fleeing to New York in the wake of a murder acquittal, Adam Harston returns to North Carolina, only to find himself trapped in the middle of a new case of murder as the people around him begin to die and he becomes the prime suspect in the crimes
