In 1833 Frankie Silver became the first woman in North Carolina to be hanged for murder. But what really happened so long ago becomes an obsession for Sheriff Spencer Arrowood, as the parallels between two crimes more than a hundred years apart become as clear -- and as shocking -- as the single truth that joins two condemned souls...
