Enos discovers the boy and takes him to his home. He, his wife Jenny, and Mrs. Hannah decide to care for the boy. FBI agent Anna Servanti helps Enos with his investigation, and together they uncover drug running and treachery involving Quality Health Supplements Company. Jennys father, Mayor Potts, is targeted, but his stay in the hospital prevents a murder hit. Innocent Souls mixes drugs, persistent police work, and family in a story that seeks to explore life in a small rural Arkansas town. Fayetteville is a Southern town where strong oaks spread their limbs, almost touching neighboring trees. Their acorns create an inviting aura of peace and tranquility. A gentle river runs the length of this small town with surrounding forests, which is home and haven for wild creatures and feathered friends alike. It is a poor town, but man, forest, and beast coexist together in peace.
