Signed by the author on the title page. Cork O'Connor is hired to head security when protests erupt after a local mine is shortlisted for storage of nuclear waste. His first day on the job, he stumbles across a secret room. Inside are the remains of six murder victims.

One of them was killed with Cork's own gun, handed down to him from his father - as was the sixth body, which has been dead less than a week. Cork must dig into the darker parts of his family's past, and unravel the clues before more death comes to Tamarack County, Minnesota.
