In this fast-paced, gritty murder mystery, Jack Herriman, a young private detective burdened with a checkered past, looks to begin his rebirth by taking on a simple missing persons case. But when the woman he is searching for turns up dead, the flawed detective delves into her family’s past and uncovers a Pandora’s box of dark secrets. Now struggling with the reemergence of his own issues of guilt and rage, Jack must navigate through a labyrinth of adultery, betrayal, and vengeance to piece together the buried truth of the past and discover the real identity of the killer.
