It is 1946 as Roth Braun makes his way through a dense forest in Thailand to reach a camp. Once he arrives, he kills its Japanese occupants and rifles through their belongings until he finds what he wants: a mysterious package left to him by his father. As Roth heads back toward his boat, he knows that even in death, his father is still attempting to dictate his life.

In the midst of a harsh New Jersey winter, Nelson Davis has returned from war and buried both his parents—but not before promising his dying mother he would take care of his older brother, Christopher. Determined to fulfill her final wish, he invites Christopher to partner with him in opening a chocolate store. Instead, Christopher heads to Georgia, where he contacts Savannah Times reporter, Rose Blake, and asks her to print a mysterious list of names somehow connected to Roth Braun, setting off a chain of events that leads Braun’s fiancée and a PI on a wild goose chase and Nelson on a dangerous quest to investigate Christopher’s puzzling death.

In this exciting prequel to Lonely Deceptions, the last surviving member of a family teams up with a beautiful newspaper reporter to weave through a maze of perplexing clues that lead him down an unexpected path to the truth.
