Trained by the Marines as a Military Criminal Investigator, Warrant Officer Harley Dodd retires after twenty years and returns home for the first time since enlistment. Had he maintained contact with the family, he would have known his mother had been placed in a nursing home, his sister Ella Mae, twenty-eight, lay in a coma as the result of being attacked in her home a year ago, and his niece Hayley, age ten, abducted and never found. When he solves the crime, he's recognized as a hero, but no one knows the truth. He did not extradite the repeat sex offender to Colorado. If found, the body would be snagged or floating in Colorado's Muddy Boggy River. That victim proved to be Harley's first and the beginning of a crusade to eradicate the Pedophilia Plague in the state of Wisconsin. We kill rabid dogs, don't we? Rabid humans deserve the same!
