"On a rain-swept wintry night in Sheffield, Mississippi, Sheriff Grover Bramlett steps into the middle of a sizzling, decades-old, clandestine love affair when a middle-aged furniture salesman named Rory Hornsly is gunned down in the parking lot of his apartment building. The sheriff soon finds that the unsolved murder of another woman in the town, Naresse Clouse, could be related to this crime." "As Bramlett gropes in the murkiness of Naresse's past, he discovers the fragmented puzzle of her forbidden and passionate romance with an unknown man still living in Sheffield. This anonymous person may well be one of the community's prominent citizens. And Bramlett also finds that the closer he moves toward the identity of the killer, the closer the killer moves toward yet another victim."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
