Lavender Raines gets the 'doorbell ring' no wife ever wants to get. Her husband has been brutally murdered, and the FBI is more secretive than helpful. The problem is, authorities found his body in Caracas when she thought his business trip had taken him to New Orleans.
Mackey just opened a second resort-town restaurant, this one in Ribault Beach, Florida … but now the clandestine security organization that sends him on covert missions from time-to-time wants him to find Lavender's husband's killers.
Forces within the "Deep State" have shaped circumstances that will alter the course of both their lives. Then a local man is found murdered. Mackey is emotionally shut down about his own life, but protective of others. Lavender is a pillar of strength in her family, but distrusting of Mackey and guarded around him. Can they find common ground amidst this treachery and turmoil?
