Former sheriff's investigator Cassie Dewell is starting her life over in private practice. When an old friend asks her to help exonerate a man accused of assaulting a young relative, Cassie reluctantly agrees. But out by the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana, twisted family loyalty runs deep, and there's always more to the story. The Kleinsassers have ruled here for decades, and the Iron Cross Ranch is their stronghold. They want to see Blake Kleinsasser, the black sheep of the family, put away forever for the assault. As Cassie attempts to uncover the truth, she must fight against both the family, whose roots are tangled and deadly, and the ghosts of her own past.
