Sam Marlowe, a 1930’s PI is back, investigating a murder in his hometown. When John Henry Marlowe, Sam’s father, finds a body, he has a hard time convincing anyone that it’s true. But when the body is recovered, John Henry finds himself and his family in danger. Sam comes to the rescue when his mother lets him know what’s going on. Before he can find the killer, Sam needs to determine the identity of the corpse. Using 1930s technology, he is able to do so. This launches a series of events that lead to a confrontation with his prime suspect. Sam’s life is in jeopardy, and the killer will never be brought to justice unless Sam is able to survive the raging waters of the Altamaha River.
