Most landowners happily sell their property - except for Ballard McCoy. He inherited fifty acres in Raythune County from his father, who was killed along with Ballard's mother and 117 others in the Buffalo Creek disaster of 1972. Ballard has always thought his father died trying to save his wife and child. But the development company's president, Melinda Henninger, says otherwise. Would a man kill just to protect his father's reputation? That's what county prosecuting attorney Bell Elkins must find out. Bell must carve a path between the past and the future, between cynicism and hope, even as she searches for the truth about what really happened on Feb. 26, 1972, when the black water rose in a rolling wall of death.

The fourth in the series about Raythune County, West Virginia and prosecutor Belfa Elkins who is a home town girl. this was more political and more descriptive about the coal mining industry which I of course enjoyed.
