Sheriff Art Simonds is ready to retire and turn the department reins over to the first black sheriff ever t be elected in DeWitt County, Texas. Simonds is well aware of known sex offenders living in the county who have to register every birthday, each vehicle change, each move to another location. Life is ordered and he is resting out his days in office when a teenager disappears.
The uproar by the girl’s grandmother leads to unsettling times, especially when a young man is arrested, turned loose on bond and disappears. Later, mutilated bodies are discovered by the grandmother’s abandoned cabin a few miles outside Cuero, Texas. The ex-sheriff becomes involved, upsetting his days of retirement. Suspects abound but no one is arrested except the grandmother. Simonds believes the law is wrong, that Leona Broughton could not be guilty of such heinous crimes.
