Dagan Murphy is a small-town deputy whose 16-year-old sister went missing 10 years ago. His father, also a deputy, died never knowing what happened to his little girl. On his deathbed, he made Dagan promise him he would never stop looking for her. When the remains of a young girl turn up in the most unusual place - the old abandoned children's mental asylum - once again Dagan becomes consumed with finding out what happened on that day so long ago when his sister simply vanished, and wants to know if the remains could be hers. His investigation is hindered by another deputy who has had it out for him since high school, a sheriff who thinks he has dedicated too much of his life to his sister's now cold case, and small-town secrets. Secrets - that someone would kill to keep from coming to light, and that someone else would kill to expose. Will he be able to work through the tangle of lies and deceit and finally be able to solve his sister's disappearance, and catch a killer who nobody would ever suspect?
