Lindbergh’s Pharmacy is an Athens, Georgia, institution --- the type of beloved mom and pop shop that once dotted every American town but has mostly disappeared. But Lindbergh’s has recently become the object of attention of a local fourth grade teacher, Tina Lamm. Tina is certain that something very, very bad is happening behind its famous black door, and she intends to do something about it. Her suspicions --- and the drastic actions she plans --- are the unlikely glue that will connect her to a group of six employees and customers inside the pharmacy one hot Georgia evening. The fates of these individuals --- and their fateful encounter with Tina Lamm --- become intertwined in a story that is by turns funny, touching and tense.

Daniel leads a rich life in the university town of Athens, Georgia. He has a steady paycheck working for a regional airline and, for a few glorious days each fall, college football tailgates. He considers himself to be a mostly lucky guy --- despite the fact that he’s suffered from a debilitating disease since he was a small child, one that has left him unable to speak or to move without a wheelchair. Largely confined to his home, Daniel spends the hours he’s not online communicating with irate air travelers observing his neighborhood from his front porch. One young woman passes by so frequently that spotting her out the window has almost become part of his daily routine. Until the day he’s almost sure he sees her being kidnapped.
