Chapter 17 Summary

In the morning, Titus arrives at work to find Kellie waiting for him, chatting with his staff. She has also brought a man named Hector who helps with the podcast. They catch up and share that they’re both dating new people, but there isn’t that much to share about the case.

Chapter 18 Summary

Carla goes through Cole Marshall’s phone and discovers that his last text message was from a woman named Dayane Carter, asking him to meet up; apparently they were seeing each other, although Cole also had a different girlfriend. Dayane works at the fish house as well. Additional facts begin to accumulate. Jasper has an alibi for Cole’s murder. Cole attended not Holy Rock but First Corinthian. Cole also was not really part of Ricky Sours’s neo-Confederate group, although he was friendly with some of its members. Now, Titus wants his deputies to find Elias and Dayane so that he can question them. Meanwhile, Trey investigates bank records and discovers that Tom is the corrupt officer who has been giving tips to Jasper.

Titus gets a phone call from someone speaking with a distorted voice. The speaker discusses Bible verses, then admits to killing the children.
