Publisher's Summary

Private detective Bill Smith is hurtled headlong into the most provocative - and personal - case of his career when he receives a chilling late-night phone call from the NYPD, which is holding his 15-year-old nephew Gary. But Gary escapes Bill's custody and disappears into the dark, unfamiliar streets.

Bill and his partner, Lydia Chin, try to find the missing teen; their search takes them to a small town in New Jersey, where they discover that one of Gary's classmates was murdered. Bill and Lydia delve into the crime - only to find it eerily similar to a decades-old murder-suicide. Now, with his nephew's future - and his very life - at stake, Bill must unravel a long-buried crime and confront the darkness of his own past.
