This morning, Jack learned that one of his few remaining friends, a man feared and reviled as the town drunk, has been found dead from an apparent alcohol-fueled suicide. Possessed by his desire to understand the violent death of this damaged man, and suffering from a debilitating disease, Jack lurches headlong into a maze of loss, deception and heartache. While grappling with the revelations of his friend's shadowy, secretive life Jack is confronted with the guilt that fills the gulf between himself and his estranged sons. In the space of a single day, Jack's reclusive life in the Ozarks is torn apart, leaving ne of those closest to him unscathed.
