Amiable and handsome, Kyle Byrne was a star athlete with brilliant prospects until he flunked out of college and ruined his chances to go pro. Now, with his house in foreclosure and his part-time job yanked, he spends his days playing Xbox and his nights in Philly bars, drinking way too much and sleeping with the wrong kind of women. Life is, well, actually pretty damn sweet.
But when his father’s former law partner is murdered, the cops see Kyle as a possible suspect and start asking uncomfortable questions about his father’s death 12 years before. Those questions propel Kyle into a search that leads from his father’s past to the highest pinnacles of power – and force Kyle to lay bare the deceptions and losses in his own life.
Just when it seems he’s close to learning the truth about his father and the murder, Kyle remembers that old adage “Be careful what you wish for.” His desire for answers will either complete him or kill him – and he won’t get to choose.
