Owen Foster is pulled from his elite New Orleans boarding school when his father's assets are seized and, back in his small town, begins to piece together his father's past despite mounting danger.
Owen Foster's mother shows up at his elite New Orleans boarding school to tell him his father has vanished-- after embezzling from the family business, the single largest employer in his small Louisiana town, and draining the employees' retirement accounts. Owen returns to Lake Cane to finish his senior year, where people he can barely remember despise him for his father's crimes. Receiving threats, Owen wants explanations for what really happened at Louisiana Frac-- and the cryptic note his father sent days before disappearing. Working at a pecan orchard after school, Owen must face a shocking truth about his own past. -- adapted from jacket
