Along the banks of the Neches River, surrounded by the dense, piney woods of East Texas, where the humidity makes even the mosquitoes go a little soft in the head, there's a pack of liars, thieves, and fools that Mimosa Mabry reluctantly calls family.
After a lifetime spent trying to put the place behind her, the kinfolk have come calling, and they want her home. Against her better judgment, Mo returns but finds the answers she's searching for - the truth about a child named Lucy - are farther from her grasp than ever. Because in deep East Texas, at the mercy of your kin, truth is relative - as enigmatic as a carnival shell game.
And the game is rigged.
