When forensic nurse Timmie Leary-Parker moves from LA to Puckett, Missouri to care for her ailing father, she's prepared for the slow pace, the small-town politics and the feeling that everyone knows her business.
Then, patients in the hospital's Alzheimer's Unit start dying in unprecedented numbers.
Everyone refuses to investigate the town's most lucrative business, and no one will challenge the hospital's Golden Boy director.
No one, except Timmie.
Convinced a serial killer walks the Alzheimer's Unit where her father lies ill, Timmie digs up a burned-out Pulitzer-winning reporter and dives into a quagmire of corruption and greed.
