Behind Every Door
When a school secretary is found murdered alongside a ditch outside of Cherokee Crossing, Arkansas, none of the usual scenarios seem to fit. Hick Blackburn, a sheriff more interested in finding justice than keeping peace, is compelled to construct the last months of her life to unearth what may have led to her death. With the citizens of Cherokee Crossing increasingly suspicious of the boys who found her body, Hick must battle the town's narrow-mindedness and quickly find those responsible.
As the investigation unfolds, it is clear that everyone has something to hide, including Hick's own family and friends. As age-old lies come to light, Hick must face the truth that people aren't always what they seem. And to find thekiller, he will learn that having secrets isn't a crime. But that some secrets can lead to murder.
