In 1999 Phoenix, the new millennium is only weeks away. But history professor David Mapstone, just hired by the Sheriff's Office, chases a robber into an abandoned warehouse and discovers a gruesome crime that is six decades old.
Mapstone's investigation widens to a Depression-era kidnapping of a cattle baron's grandsons, their bodies never found. And although the kidnapper was caught and executed, Mapstone uncovers evidence that justice was far from done.
And then, one of the cattle baron's heirs who is running a Fortune 500 company turns up dead....
