A desperate plea from a seventh grade girlfriend brings Denver PI, Cortlandt Scott, back to his tiny hometown in Oregon after thirty years of estrangement from his friends, family, and community.
Under the guise of attending a thirty year high school reunion, he investigates the murder of the richest man in town. Unfortunately, many of his old friends turn out to be suspects in the murder.
A newly elected sheriff, Oregon's new economy of wine and marijuana, and a forty year old scandal complicated the investigation and add additional prime suspects and motives in his search for a killer.
Cort Scott soon discovers, "You cannot go home again."
