When a death among the close-knit Appalachian Irish Travellers nearly goes unnoticed, it’s up to one of their own to shed light on the matter . . .
Not long after donning the uniform of the McCreary County Sheriff's department in Bone Gap, Tennessee, ex-Marine Brynn Callahan is sent to investigate the remains of a body discovered in a nearby cave. She never expected to recognize the victim—a fellow Traveller, Maura Keene.
After Brynn and her K-9, Wilco, find evidence leading her to question those closest to her, solving the case becomes a deeply personal matter. To find justice for a woman not unlike herself, Brynn must put her career on the line and her life at risk . . .
