New York homicide detective, John Webb, is having a bad week. Mind you, family reunions are bad enough, but since the focus is the brutal and sudden murder of his favorite uncle, Reverend Carl Rivers, it’s even worse. And, it doesn’t help John one little bit that his investigation is hampered by a local sheriff’s deputy with a chip on his shoulder, the local homegrown psychic, an amorous librarian who just won’t shut up and a flock of wild peacocks. John soldiers on through it all, even when more bodies start cropping up all over the place. Not to mention when the details of his own family’s misdeeds become entangled in his investigation, and when the prime suspect winds up being entirely too close for comfort.
Surrounded by bizarre personalities and a social scheme that is completely foreign to him, John Webb must attempt to resolve his own issues while unraveling a mystery that began before he was even born. Set amongst the picturesque backdrop of a small Georgia town in 1942, The Rivers Webb tells a tale of unspoken crimes, hidden sins, and unrevealed guilt. Above all, it reminds us that nothing is ever really forgotten.
