Dewey develops an obsessive interest in tracking down the perpetrators, sacrificing his physical and mental health for the six weeks they are at large. He lives in Garden City with his wife and two sons, and through Dewey we experience the many of the mixed emotions circulating in the town pertaining to the search, arrest, and trial of the two killers. Dewey's family is left isolated from his obsession. The family must forsake a "normal" life while he chases around the country looking for the perpetrators.
