Between three strange murders, constant poaching in the wild life refuge, and the planned protest against the resort that is destroying the wild life refuge, Mack Thomas has his hands full. That's just the beginning though. He receives a totally unexpected inheritance, which alone, is enough to change his life. Then another unexpected event occurs when someone suddenly becomes a huge part of his life. Someone who shouldn't be part of his life, but is now and forever will be. Then disaster strikes, and it changes everything, even though everything has already been changed.
