Retired Louisiana Bureau of Investigation Detective Dwayne Chevalier, faces the most challenging case he has ever encountered. Is it murder, redemption or a miracle?
Eighty year old swamp dweller, Etta Mouton, a woman of color, lives deep in the Louisiana bayou. It isn't often that she finds a young white man near her river shack, shot six times and left for dead.
Secluded from society by choice, Etta has lived in the bayou for fifty-five years, ever since she was raped and her brothers killed by white men in New Orleans in the 1950's. During the aftermath of the worst hurricane in US history, she hadn't counted on being burdened with nursing an unappreciative young caucasion man with an attitude back to health.
Major Dwayne Chevalier is affectionately referred to by his former collegues as the black Sherlock Holmes. After all, he is the most successful investigator in Louisiana history. He'll be challenged by this case however, as he is called upon to come out of retirement and figure out a case with more twists and turns than a winding mountain road.
Is it murder, redemption or a miracle he seeks to find?
