It's 1924, and a much-anticipated Thanksgiving with his family is disrupted as Dassas Cormier must travel from Marshall's Bayou to Lake Charles to help his sister and her companion, a renowned author and adventurer whose tall tales don't sit right with Dassas. Colonel Jedidiah Gilmore is the only witness to a bank robbery and murder, but his testimony doesn't match the facts.

When trouble follows them back to Marshall's Bayou, Dassas must decide if the Colonel's story is just another fabrication before the murderer claims another victim. And while protecting his family, he must decide how to break the news to his star-struck nephew that the Colonel isn't quite the adventurer he claims to be.
