When sixteen-year-old Hannah Sheraton is arrested for the murder of her stepgrandfather, the chief justice of the California Supreme court, her distraught mother turns to her old college roommate, Josie Baylor-Bates, for help. Josie, once a hot-shot criminal defense attorney, left the fast track behind for a small practice in Hermosa Beach, California. But Hannah Sheraton intrigues her and, when the girl is charged as an adult, Josie cannot turn her back. But the deeper she digs the more Josie realizes that politics, the law and family relationships create a combustible and dangerous situation. When the horrible truth is uncovered it can save Hannah Sheraton or destroy them both.
In the winter of 1968, a young woman named Harriet disappears outside of Denver. Soon after, her father dies mysteriously. The family’s three remaining sons—Wayne, Roy, and Conrad—grow increasingly distant as the specters of murder, family, and suspicion loom. As the brothers grow older, they learn that loss comes in many forms—in absence and silence, and in death.
Decades later, Wayne’s only child confronts the brothers, uncovering long-buried resentments that have plagued the family for generations. We encounter Conrad, an ex-Army alcoholic, the now sober but wheelchair-bound Roy, and an increasingly distant and reclusive Wayne—delirious with the belief that he can create his own history. Profoundly dark and tragically honest, the narrative arranges each brother’s testimony into a fractured conversation—one that, were it real, could bring the brothers back together after a lifetime of estrangement.
Through a discord of interviews, undelivered letters, and transcripts of Wayne’s compulsive audio recordings, the brothers sift through the layers of resentment, bitterness, and betrayal that marred their adolescence. Each distorted memory brings the narrative closer to the truths of Harriet’s disappearance and her father’s erratic demise. But memories decay quickly, and the brothers’ recollections serve only to expose a darker beast feeding at the heart of the broken family—one shrouded in suspicion and governed by regret.
Nathan is terrible at relationships…

Her campaign of rumors and innuendo—and eventually physical evidence—draws the attention of friends and strangers alike, and threatens to bring their world crashing down.
However, sometimes those who are quickest to judge are the last ones who should be throwing stones…

on the backs of river dolphins
blind but smiling’
