On day one of Father Frank’s first vacation in four years, a man says to him, “I’m gonna kill you.”
Then suddenly, the threat of violence includes another person. Now, Father Frank knows something must be done. But since the threat came via the confessional, he can’t tell the police. He can’t even tell the other person who is in danger. Father Frank is pretty much on his own.
And to make matters worse, all this happens in Magnolia Bluff, a beautiful Texas Hill Country town, but a place Father Frank has just come to visit. He doesn’t know the people; he doesn’t know the town, and he certainly doesn’t have a clue who is issuing the threat.
His vacation hasn’t started well, and if he can’t stop this man from killing, it will end suddenly – and much worse.
