Disillusioned with police work and with life in general, Karl Myers heads west in the fall of 1955 in search of his wife Laura, who was last reported to be living in Port Townsend, Washington. In North Dakota during the trip west, serendipity deposits Myers in the midst of a prison break, and he captures an escapee named Mato-sa or Red Bear. Fate also reunites Myers with Reginald Rhodes, a Marine brother he first met in 1942 when Rhodes was a fresh recruit just graduated from college and Myers was his D.I. at Montford Point Camp. As did others before them, Myers and Rhodes land at the Port Townsend ferry terminal next to the Town Tavern and work at the Tavern in exchange for a bunk upstairs. In the days that follow, Myers and Rhodes begin to grow roots and relationships in their new town, and Myers becomes immersed in solving a murder that has chilling connections to Red Bear and to Laura.
