William Harper returns to his birthplace in southern Ohio after the curious death of a friend. As he relives memories of his early life, a central plot emerges from his childhood conflict with a local street antagonist. Will is a widowed and benevolent civilian asset. On assignment he serves as a special deputy for the U.S. Marshals Service Special Operations Group (SOG), a natural wonder who brings new meaning to the SO class.
Share Will’s journey through a colorful and profound youth, into the callous territories of the underworld, for an amusing, romantic rekindling, and in the defining pursuit of his formal rival. The ultimate manhunt flows from the Ohio River valley into the once notorious Hocking Hills, home of Ohio University main, a wooded setting poised for suspense and resolution. The celebrated Will Harper does not disappoint.
