John O'Bannon, ex-Chicago homicide detective, moved to the sultry riverfront of Vicksburg, Mississippi dreaming of a slow paced life in semi-retirement. He figured his days as a private eye taking pictures of cheating spouses for divorce lawyers and recovering lost family jewels would both pay the bills and allow time to enjoy life in the slow lane of southern country comfort. He thought it was business as usual when he agreed to meet the mysterious Southern belle Jeri Lynn Lee at a local eatery. He was wrong, on all counts.
At the behest of one of the local gentry, Judge Horatio Robert Lee, and with the help of Hushi Humma, a sexy and fascinating half Choctaw Indian woman, John is forced to confront past failures and unlock the secrets of Deer Run Falls. He must choose one, dangerous lust or the promise of love, no matter how deadly the consequences.
