For the first time in a long while, Emery Hazard's life is good. His new business as a private detective is taking off. Things are good at home. He loves his boyfriend, John-Henry Somerset; he loves their daughter. He might even love the new friends they've found. There's only one problem: Somers has been talking about marriage.

When a former colleague, Walter Hoffmeister, comes to Hazard and hires him to look into a series of anonymous death threats, Hazard eagerly jumps on the distraction. Hoffmeister might be a jerk, but he's a paying jerk, and Hazard isn't convinced the threats are serious.

Until, that is, Hoffmeister is almost gunned down on Hazard's doorstep. As Hazard investigates more deeply, he learns that more than one person in Wahredua has a reason to wish Hoffmeister dead. His search takes him to the Ozark Volunteers, reincarnated as the Bright Lights movement, but it also leads him into a sanctuary of radical Christianity. Meanwhile, an antifa activist has arrived in town, calling for Hoffmeister's death and threatening total war with the Bright Lights.

As Hazard continues to look for answers, he becomes a target too - and not just because he's helping Hoffmeister. The Keeper of Bees is still at large, and the killer hasn't lost interest in Emery Hazard. Not yet. Not, Hazard begins to suspect, until the Keeper has taken everything Hazard holds dear.
