Shaken by an unwanted divorce, FBI Special Agent Kit McGovern retreats to her grandmother's Virginia island home for a little R & R. But her vacation comes to an unexpected end when the body of a young Latino boy is found on the beach. Kit teams up with D.C. cop David O'Connor to investigate the murder with the smallest of clues—tomato seeds and acorns found in the boy's pockets. Using plant DNA evidence, Kit traces the young boy to a huge farm where more than a killer looms. With grit, determination, and a growing interest in David, Kit pursues her case and discovers that, to truly move forward in life, justice has to be tempered with mercy.
