Five years ago, Janine Tolley died of what the cops said was a drug overdose. Her daughter Madisyn doesn't believe it and wants to hire John Logan to find the truth.
Maddie is 14, homeless, and Logan believes she simply doesn't want to face some hard facts about her mom's death - until men try to snatch Maddie from under his nose. Then witnesses lie to him. And more questions are raised. What Logan thought would be a quick case turns into a twisted tale of greed, love spurned, bad business, and a man who wants to be governor. The case will put Logan at odds with the detectives who speak for the dead, as well as the man who leads them, Lt. Jake Ross. It's a race to the truth as Logan searches for the truth while trying to keep an orphaned girl alive.
