Charles Lockhart, World War II hero and now Chief of Police of the small Florida Everglades town of Lakepoint in the mid-1950s, embarks on a relentless search to find the killer in a 10-year-old unsolved double-murder case - drawn from an actual crime that remains unsolved to this day. The Chief's pursuit takes twists and turns in the Glades winter-farming region, an area unique in Florida and the world. The effort also takes him to the glamorous Florida Gold Coast, the state capital, and the Big Cypress swamp. Simultaneously, he must deal with the murder of a black man in the highly segregated society of the time. Lakepoint immerses you in the rough-and-tumble frontier culture of the Glades, introduces you to intriguing characters, and puts you by the Chief's side as his solutions to the two crimes bring him into searing conflict with community leaders and the townspeople.
