The owner of a sugar plantation is discovered in broad daylight in his mill with a machete in his back. Poole and his team have a seemingly impossible case to solve. Despite countless suspects, his ex-wife, his nephew, his new younger girlfriend and others all within sight of each other giving cast iron alibis. Broken glass from a torch, letters JOH scrawled in blood by the victim, a disappearing small girl and a near-two-hundred-year-old mystery of disappearing slaves are the only clues.
