In one brief moment of fire and wrenching metal, Casey Maldonado's life seemed over. The car manu-facturer was generous with its settlement, but it can never be enough. So she packs up, puts her house on the market, and leaves town. Her only companion: Death, who won't take her, but won't leave her alone.
In Clymer, a small blue-collar town in the midst of Ohio farmland, Casey finds tragedy. The town's main employer is moving to Mexico, and a beloved single mother has committed suicide. But many of the citizens don't believe the verdict of suicide. Death encourages Casey to investigate, and she uncovers information that suggests a cover-up. Threatened, Casey decides she'd be better off back on the road, but the murderer can't let her go with everything she knows....
