At the request of a local journalist, genealogist Torie
O'Shea sets out to research her Missouri hometown's two
mayoral candidates: incumbent Bill Castlereagh and his
challenger, Sheriff Colin Brooke, Torie's stepfather.
With the discovery of a body linked to the Chicago Mafia,
Torie's research into the mayor's genealogy turns up more
questions than answers. As the case unravels, the mayor
flees town and Torie makes a shocking discovery that might
lead to her own demise.
