Milton, Illinois is a small Midwestern town that sports an incredibly low crime rate. Violent crime is almost unheard of; only two murders in nearly forty years. A mysterious suicide brings one family back together in Milton. While asking around about their sister’s suicide, TH and Richie Brown find that both of the murder cases handled by their father, Chief of Police Teddy Brown, may have been fixed. A convicted killer lies dying of cancer in a nursing home. His release from prison has people talking about The Murder of Fatty Fuller and his conviction. Old questions come to light. An unsolved murder of a young black man nearly forty years earlier draws more attention. Are both cases somehow connected? As more questions arise, and as answers appear, history rears its ugly head and threatens to tear the Brown family apart.
