Deke is a loner, a reluctant drifter, but he has a good heart. He is searching for a place to belong, a place to fit in, a place to call home. He meets, and falls in with, Cole. It’s a moment that seems innocuous, but marks a diversion into a strange new life for Deke. Cole’s twisted mind is prone to violence. When Cole drags Deke into a string of crimes, including murder, the only way Deke can escape is to move on, drift again, to keep searching.

Their story zooms in on, and escalates in, Logan, an economically depressed farming town in West Texas. The inhabitants, mostly ranchers and farmers, uneasily co-exist with the land and climate. Forty years have come and gone while the townspeople stood solemnly by, watching as the town withered and dried.

Without knowing the connection among the town’s characters and how their lives intertwine, Logan seems to be exactly what Deke is looking for as he attempts to not only escape Cole, but also find the comfort he desires.

His peace, however, is short-lived. With a wake of violence trailing him, Cole is on the move, vowing to catch up with Deke.
