How far will a man go to protect his family?
Attorney Sam Trask will go farther than he ever dreamed, even in his worst nightmare. Because his worst nightmare is about to come true...
At age forty-seven, attorney Sam Trask finally seems to have his life in order. The dark years of too much drinking and all-consuming ambition have given way to Christian faith. His marriage is strong again. Everything seems finally on the right track.
Then a voice from the past comes back to say hello.
Suddenly Sam faces a danger more real than he ever imagined-danger from someone who will not rest until Sam's life comes crashing down around him. Desperate, Sam seeks protection from the law he's served all his life. But when the threats are turned on his family, and the law seems powerless to protect them, Sam must consider a choice that strikes at the heart of his life and faith-whether to take the law into his own hands.
After finally getting his life back on track, thanks to his love of Christ, attorney Sam Trask hears from an old college dorm mate, Nicky Oberlin, who seems anxious to reconnect, but when Sam tries to back out gracefully, he soon learns that Nicky is a sociopath who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.
