A legendary, but dangerous road, a target, a fatal mistake, an unintended victim, and C. W. Coleman make a lethal combination.
Telegraph is a winding tale that needs to be told by the one man that has never forgotten that cold March night when Margaret Coleman was found dead at the scene. C. W. Coleman's life is forever changed and every person in Taylor County will be affected.
Thus, the nightmare begins with Madison Conner asking why and Coleman asking why Margaret was caught in the middle of a mafia execution? He certainly couldn't tell Madison he'd had her husband killed. As the layers of betrayal unfold Coleman finds himself looking in Hank O'Malley's direction. Hank, now a respected judge, mired in gambling debt, had struck a deal years ago with the devil, Charles McConnell, that would only come back to haunt him.
The real mystery, however, lies sixty years in the past with Dr. Dan O'Han and his friend Henry Maxwell who was shot and killed in his study and there was only one witness, Judy O'Malley. Judy has hidden her secret well, but with Margaret's death and Hank's involvement, Judy is now faced with a choice - keep her secret or face Coleman.
Does Coleman find the justice he so desperately wants?
