Marge Christensen and her husband, Pete Peterson, want to adopt their two foster sons-but Eric's grandfather is threatening to gain custody of the twelve-year-old boy. To prevent this from happening, Marge and Eric take a road trip to Pasco, Washington, a typically quiet rural area near the Cascade Range. Before they even say hello, the two find themselves staring down the barrel of a shotgun. In less than twenty-four hours that same gun is used to kill a man. Marge realizes that Eric's future depends on her discovering the truth, rather than accepting the police's accusation that Eric's grandfather is the killer. While Marge is tracing bloodlines and looking for motivations in this small town, Pete is busy in Bellevue keeping eleven-year-old Benjamin safe and off the streets where he wants to go to rescue his drug-addicted mother. Find your favorite reading spot and join Marge on what could be her last adventure.
