In Belle Plaine, Iowa, the Heartland of America's Bread Basket, where folks in small rural communities value hard work, patriotism, and moral fiber, there's a serpent loose. After a quiet farmer is found hanging from a rafter of his milking barn, Police Chief Jimmy Novotny suspects there's more going on than a simple suicide. But battling demons and ghosts of his own, plus a host of folks eager to close the case, Jimmy finds the investigation more difficult to deal with than he'd expected - until there's another suspicious death. Jimmy doesn't know exactly whom he can trust, especially when confronted with a pretty redheaded reporter from Cedar Rapids who's after a big story.
