Lots of people drive down I-95 on their way to Florida and for most it’s an uneventful trip. Not for Chris Sandige, a political operative from Washington, D.C. Chris swerves to avoid a dog, looses control of his car, and finds himself marooned in Lumberton for a weekend. It could have been a quiet weekend, but Chris makes the mistake of inviting a pretty and mysterious woman to join him at dinner. While Chris is enjoying dinner, the sheriff’s department is investigating the murder of a local banker and his wife. The two threads of the story come together in the person of the lady, as Chris is drawn into a web of oil profiteering, money laundering, and political corruption.
