The last day of Reggie DeLillos' life starts out with a bad cup of coffee and goes downhill from there. His dog Molasses is poisoned by the boy next door, and Reggie, who threatened to kill David Robertson when the boy admitted what he'd done, is discovered in the Robertsons' house standing over David's dead body with gun drawn. The rookie cop who stumbles onto the scene, draws his own weapon and shoots Reggie dead.
Reggie's friend Juke Miller, an ex-cop who took early retirement seven years ago--after his wife was raped and murdered by parties unknown---doesn't believe his good friend and neighbor Reggie killed the David Robertson. But if Reggie didn't, who did, and why?
Disturbed by Reggie's death, Juke takes matters into his own hands, turning up some very (VERY) ugly facts which rock his small town and shatter the lives of his "good" neighbors.
