Dan Kelly, a banker in exile, his personal life in shambles, has been sent by his Mississippi-based bank to establish a foothold in Texas, a precursor to eventual expansion into the moneyed Lone Star state. He settles in among the towering pines and thick hardwoods of the region known as Deep East Texas. Surprised and intrigued by the mysterious, secluded beauty of the area, he begins a secret, part-time endeavor offering parcels of land to potential buyers beyond state lines, utilizing ads in regional newspapers in neighboring states. An elderly couple, posing as retired industrialists from Ohio, purchases one of the properties deep in the heart of rural San Gabriel County, in the middle of the deep woods. Unbeknownst to Kelly, the couple is acting as a front for a brutal, murderous crime lord who has recently been forced out of northern Ohio due to the death of a local sheriff who became too nosy. Upon discovering the danger he has ushered in to peaceful San Gabriel County and its citizens, Kelly looks for ways to undo the damage he has caused. His desperate efforts follow him to Dallas, Houston, and to Knoxville, Tenn. as well, while his life descends into danger. His odyssey ends on a dark September night in the now threatening thickets of the East Texas woods during a life-or-death confrontation.
