Sami's Review:
Haunted by the murder of his father John Riley Hubbard has been trying to let go of the past and start a new life. This new life consists of running his farm and freelance reporting on local sports along with infrequent visits with his daughter. When the head of the paper calls him early one morning to cover a story regarding a body that was found in the long abandoned Shanty Town John is plagued with old memories and wants to refuse, however the money is something he could use so he accepts the job. What should have been just a simple story covering the murder turns out to be so much more. John knows right away that something just doesn’t add up with not only where this body was found but the conclusions the authorities are coming up with on why this young man was killed. Like a dog with a bone John continues to investigate. When the FBI comes in John knows there is definitely more to this death than meets the eye. While many try to warn him off of this case he simply cannot let it go. If he couldn’t find justice for his father he will for this young man. Innuendos fly that his Uncle is the oe responsible just as many assumed he was the one who murdered John’s father so long ago. Can John figure out what really happened before he gets himself killed? Knowing the lengths the ones responsible have gone t to cover this up is anyone really safe? Will justice be served? Can John finally put his past to rest and move on with his life?
