He said into the mic, Go ahead, Abel. Jim, you aint gonna believe this. You better come on out as soon as you can. No, dont wait. Come now. Even over the air, Abels voice sounded urgent. Fowler could not account for it, but he had an uneasy feeling in his stomach. Three bodies are found in an abandoned culvert, one dead less than seventy-two hours and the others deteriorated into skeletons. Chief Fowler, a novice in the small southern town of Roackeville, realizes he doesnt have the experience to solve the case. Rather than risk turning it over to another agency and getting left out of the loop, Fowler turns to Richard Lett. Lett, a retired federal agent, is hesitant to help with the case. What if he has to face those dark places hes avoided for so long? Letts sense of obligation to bring a murderer to justice wins over, and he signs on to solve the case. In a small town divided by economic status and race, tensions run high between law enforcement and potential suspects. The investigation takes more twists and turns than Fowler or Lett bargained for, and they cant help but wonder if the mysteries behind the murders will ever be revealed. Can Fowler and Lett break the social ties to solve the case? Will the intricate web of deeply buried secrets ever be untangled? Discover the mystery behind The Quarter Dollar.
