Lafouchfeye County, Mississippi, and the entire Mississippi Gulf Coast were still reeling from the double murder in August of 1987 of a distinguished Judge and his wife, when a week before Christmas of the same year, the newlywed couple of recently elected District Attorney Wendell Matthew Holmes, Jr. of Warren County, Mississippi, and his wife Emma, are discovered dead in a refrigerator car in the Lafouchfeye County railroad yard.
Percy (Teaspoon) Dinwiddle was found guilty of the Holmes' murders and sentenced to thirty years in prison. The first case went unsolved, Sheriff Travis died of a heart attack and after the first of the year, his son, Jim Travis was elected Sheriff on January 6, 1988.
Twenty years later a young lawyer named Taylor L. Lipton, was researching both sets of homicides. New evidence through DNA was introduced concerning Percy Dinwiddle and Percy was set free February 1, 2009.
Greed, revenge, and deception erupt like a volcano, throwing Jim, Bea and Aunt Jewels into a whirlwind of chaos.
