'Echo Springs on the edge of the outback – a town where everyone knows your name, and your business. But the wholesome country living and welcoming community aren't what they used to be. Echo Springs has a dark underbelly, and it is seeping ever outward.
'Jacinta Buchanan understands stress. Between trying to keep the family farm going and convince her father that she's the best (and only) option to take over permanently, she has a lot on her plate. So when one of the old mines on the property blows up, killing a local teenager, she can barely hold it together. But finding out that she's a suspect and the cop sent to investigate her is her brother's best friend is the absolute last straw.
'Country cop Mac Hudson is used to disappointment. He's watched friends, classmates, townspeople he likes and respects cross the line time and time again, and it's his job to dole out the consequences. But discovering that Jac Buchanan has a meth lab on her property is an unexpected blow, so when she hatches a plan to prove her innocence and draw out the real culprits, he agrees to go along. But there's a darkness on Bull's Run that runs deeper than they expect and a darkness in Echo Springs that stretches further than they can imagine. In their quest for the truth, Jacinta and Mac will have to risk the town they both love and the future they're only beginning to imagine.'
