In the 1950s, the small, friendly town of Shelbyville, Tennessee, was most famous for being the home of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration. Its citizens took pride living in "The Walking Horse Capital of the World." But during the three-year period of 1955 to1958, Shelbyville became known as something much more sinister: "Kidnapper's Paradise." When the first teenage victim disappeared, the police initially believed she had run away from home. But when more children started to vanish, a cloud of fear and paranoia cloaked the town. This was especially true for Corbin and LorAnn Carter who feared their two young daughters--Dixie and Dollie--could be the next victims of the malevolent menace.
As two local detectives scrambled to solve and stop the mysterious disappearances, they struggled to fit all the puzzle pieces together. Suspicious of corruption within the city police department, the detectives faced countless roadblocks and detours during their relentless efforts to solve the open cases.
