About The Book

In order to keep his father’s speakeasy afloat, Myers unwittingly gets caught up in his family’s ties to the occult.

Myers Carpenter is a bootlegger who just inherited his family's bar, The Flatbed. Unsure of whether or not he even wants to keep the famous speakeasy, Myers is forced to find a new booze supplier when he burns his bridges at his long time source in Mississippi. The only option he can turn to is his estranged mother, a woman he hasn't seen since he was a young boy, now running a fishing Lodge for the wealthy; and a half sister he knew nothing about. As Myers becomes more entangled in the lives of his newfound family, he begins to learn the secrets of the Lodge and a dark cult thriving just under the surface of wealth and opulence.

Adam Smith and Matt Fox, the acclaimed creative team behind Long Walk to Valhalla, reunite for a gripping southern gothic thriller about finding your family and the true cost of happiness
