Jesse's anger and the killings that are taking place lead the reader to believe that Cooke is responsible for the destruction around Mercy. This changes when Jesse is found dead after kidnapping Lily, killed in the same manner as the ranch hand and the hitchhiker that were found dead; stabbed and scalped, on Mercy land.
Willa struggles to keep her sisters safe and run the ranch, sometimes angering those she cares for. After an argument with Ham, the foreman who more or less raised her, Willa discovers Ham injured and Jim Brewster, another man who has worked the ranch forever, standing over the body. Jim stuns Willa by telling her that he is her brother, the illegitimate son of Jack Mercy. Brewster takes Willa into the mountains so that he can explain why he has been killing, first animals, and then people.
Jim's anger at never being acknowledged by their father, and then left out of the will has caused him to snap. At first killing animals was simply to channel his anger but he discovered not only that he liked it, but that it upset the people living on the ranch. Jim tried at first to scare away Lily and Tess, figuring that if he couldn't have the ranch then no one would. Things changed for Jim when he rescued Lily from Jesse, killing the man who had hurt his sister.
Deciding that being a hero was better, Jim simply wants Willa to tell the others that she was taken and Jim saved her. Though Willa agrees Jim declares that she is lying and prepares to kill her as well. Ben arrives and kills Jim, saving the woman he loves, and ending the horrors that have been taking place for the past year.
The three Mercy daughters, now sisters and a united family finally find happiness on Mercy Ranch, their home. Willa and Ben will be married, as Lily and Adam are, now expecting a child. Tess, despite her assurances that she would not stay, makes it as far as the airport before realizing that she would be leaving happiness behind in the form or her sisters and the man she loves. In the end, despite the lack of love that Jack Mercy had for anyone, love returns to the ranch, this time to stay.
