However, before they leave on their flight, the Innocence Alliance asks Cal to return to the scene of the crime deep in the Okefenokee Swamp and find out if it’s a case worth pursuing.Scared about what he might learn regarding his favorite football player from yesteryear, Cal must unravel a mystery that had far-reaching implications on a small town and not a single reliable witness. Facing mounting pressure from the sheriff to leave, Cal and Kelly must navigate political landmines and uncover deep and guarded secrets in an effort to prove Drake’s innocence—or his guilt.
