Private detective Charlie Parker has been hired to investigate whether Grace Peltier's death was suicide or murder. That she stole a relic once belonging to the Aroostock Baptists, who were buried in a mass grave in Maine 40 years ago, complicates his investigation and causes him to descend into a world of lost souls.
