For years, Wardsville sat nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, a peaceful small town. The kind of place where neighbors care for each other. But that's until unexpected funding arrives to build a road into town. With millions to be gained in land and development deals-and millions to be lost for those in the road's way-everyone has something at stake. Suddenly, this quiet town is torn in two as neighbor turns on neighbor. The fate of the project and the future of the town rest on the decision by the county board, but when someone may have gone as far as cold-blooded murder, is anyone safe?
