When Caleb Zelic finds one of his clients murdered, it’s a bad day; when he discovers the man was federal police it’s the beginning of a nightmare. Against his better judgment he is drawn into the investigation.


Soon Caleb finds himself mixed up with his crooked ex-partner Frankie and the fallout from a money-laundering scheme gone wrong. More people start dying, as someone tries to clear up the mess. And then a nine-year-old girl goes missing.


Frankie and Caleb are determined to find her, but will she be alive when they do? Together they follow a trail that leads to betrayal, death and an agonizing choice.
