(PRLEAP.COM) "Misty Flats: A Tale of Sin and Redemption," a new book by Frank Walton Avery, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

In the small town of Misty Flats, an area deep in the belly of North Carolina, the Vietnam War has attacked the mind of young Joshua Reynolds. As the county sheriff, and with a loving wife and twin daughters, Joshua should feel like he has the perfect life. Yet, the aftereffects of the war have left him with an addiction to drugs, supplied by his brother, Abe, and severe PTSD.

In a PTSD-induced blackout, he finds his wife missing and soon found dead in an abandoned well. Joshua cannot account, even to himself, where he was the night she was murdered. Did he do it? If so, would anyone believe that he truly doesn't remember?
