When Brad Pope returns to his boyhood hometown to settle a debt with his estranged father and re-establish a bond with his cantankerous Grandma Gigi, the 35-year-old psychologist becomes a prime suspect in the murder of football legend turned cave diver, Big Jake Nunn. As if being accused of murder isn’t shock enough, the psychologist is horrified by his father’s whereabouts. And Grandma Gigi and her club sisters start to look more like cold-bloodied killers than church ladies. This offbeat, fast-paced mystery witnesses beauty and brutality in a small Southern town, twisting and turning, teasing to the surface one suspicion, one misunderstanding, and one murder at a time.
