When former prosecutor Cal Claxton’s neighbor, Jim Kavanaugh, the owner and gifted vintner of an up-and-coming winery, is accused of murdering his wife, his freedom --- and the grape harvest --- is suddenly in jeopardy along with his reputation, and his business begins to slide. No gentleman farmer, this puts the rugged winemaker's property, his only financial asset, in play. When a blackmail plot is hatched against the owner of adjacent land, it begins to look like a brutal game of real-life Monopoly is underway. Cal agrees to defend Jim, a good friend, which pulls him reluctantly into the blackmail plot and might well make him the next target of a vicious, cunning killer.

The first closing of the floodgates of the mammoth Dalles Dam on the Columbia River inundated the sacred falls and the Native American village at Celilo, which depended on the river’s magnificent fish. Nelson Queah --- Wasco Indian, war hero and passionate opponent of the dam --- watched helplessly as 10,000 years of tribal history and fishing tradition disappeared. That 1957 night, he vanished without a trace. Fifty years later, attorney Cal Claxton attends a commemoration of the flooding of the falls where he meets Winona Cloud, Queah’s granddaughter who has found a cache of letters at her grandmother’s home, letters Queah wrote to his wife before he vanished. They suggest foul play, not an accidental drowning.
