Joey Tallon has witnessed many profound changes in the small town of Scotsfield. The men have changed from brutality and corruption to wealth and respectability. And Joey's transformed himself too, and it's his love for Jacy that has transformed him. So now Joey Tallon is gonna tell it like it was . . . But who'll believe a kidnapper, a fantasist, a jailbird, when he says he knows the truth about the past the Scotsfield men would rather leave buried? And who's brave enough to hear his testimony?
