Before the jury began deliberations, Nick Carlisle took a plea deal. Convinced he was going to lose at trial, Nick is now serving twenty-five years for killing his high school sweetheart.
Greg Owen was a private eye. Was. Now he’s a little bit of everything: ex-husband, devoted father, small business owner, real estate investor … one of these days he’ll make his first million. Doing something. Or, more likely, doing a lot of somethings.
The last thing he should be doing is looking into a murder where all the evidence points at the young man in prison.
An old friend has asked for his help. Greg reluctantly agrees, thinking the investigation will be open and shut—and over quickly enough he can get back to his own mad pursuit of the American Dream.
But why now, five years into his sentence, is Nick ready to proclaim his innocence again?
Greg is going to find out. Even if it kills him.
