September 1957: Joliet, Illinois. On a fog-enshrouded evening in this Illinois steel town, a hot-tempered newswoman walks onto a bridge and disappears, leaving behind a mystery that will haunt the Midwest forever. While the clock runs out on the reckless reporter's life, a wealthy young Rackets Committee attorney named Robert F. Kennedy arrives in Joliet just in time to plunge into a maelstrom of lies and violence, where he will be forced to confront his own guilt for the dark secrets of our country's favorite decade. And when Kennedy weaves his way through a nightmarish maze of hot dog massacres, whipping cults, disfigured torch singers and hired killers, truth becomes maddeningly elusive, and questions of loyalty, lust and legacy get answered by the cries of passion forming a dying city's sordid soundtrack. Before it's over, more than one murder will have changed the lives of everyone in Joliet...and America.
