It’s Christmas morning in La Crosse, WI. The sun is shining, the air is crisp, and the body of a young man has just been found in the icy waters of the Mississippi River. Former high school football coach, Rob Casey, had all too often read about drowning victims in the area, but he never thought that he would be unlucky enough to discover a body himself. Especially not the body of someone he knew, had coached, and had just seen the night before.
But what starts as a tragedy for this small town soon turns into an investigation that will change everything, putting Rob’s own family directly under the microscope. Between his sister, Karen, trying hard to avoid the law, and his shady brother, Richie, falling squarely into position as prime suspect, all eyes are on the Casey family. As Rob tries desperately to protect his family and clear his brother’s name, he dives into a mystery that may never be solved. Was it an accident, or was it murder? Only the truth will tell, and this journey will show Rob Casey that searching for the truth, and accepting what you find, are two very different things.
