“People in this town keep secrets hidden as if it’s their birthday suit. You’re digging in a place where worms are present. If you dig deep enough, you might not like what’s in that steel vault!”
Like every small town in the rural south, Coppertown has its quirks and its secrets. Jessica Winslow, a young, beautiful curator at a local museum, feels it is up to her to unravel these skeletons starting with an exhibition project called “Black Widow Swamp,” one of the town’s most embarrassing myths. After receiving an anonymous “top secret” file on the mysterious landmark, she opens up a Pandora’s Box to a seventy-year-old murder case on a drifter by the name of Tresstina Bandeau. As Jessica digs deeper to the truth, she realizes the real truth is in her backyard, and she’s not safe from what is coming her way. Jessica will have to face what she started, or suffer what’s coming her way.
