The snow has melted in Wild Thyme, Pennsylvania. But for Officer Henry Farrell, summer has brought nothing but trouble. While he'd rather be hunting turkeys, drinking beer, and playing his fiddle, he's the only cop in town, and he's got plenty to do. There's been a surge in burglaries, the local heroin and meth problem has grown, and struggling after the death of his wife, he is caught up in an affair with a married woman. When local carpenter Kevin O'Keefe admits he's shot a man, and that his drug-hazed girlfriend Penny is missing, the search lures Farrell across state lines - and into a far-ranging investigation that threatens to upend his hidden wilderness.
