• Hardcover: 304 pages
• Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks (January 6, 2015)

George Foss has passed the age when he thinks he might fall madly in love or have anything truly remarkable happen to him. He spends evenings at his local tavern talking about the Red Sox and obsessing over a lost love from his college days who vanished twenty years earlier. Until she reappears.

George has both dreamed of and dreaded seeing Liana Decter again. She’s an enigma and quite possibly someone who was involved in a murder years ago. But she’s back—and needs his help. She says that some men are after her and that they believe she’s stolen their money. And now they will do whatever it takes to get it back.

George can’t say no—he never could—and soon his life is gone as he is pulled into a terrifying whirlpool of lies and betrayal, from which there is no sure escape.
