Jeremy Grey’s life is a mess and it’s getting worse. With a failing business and a critically ill son, he desperately needs money. A chance encounter with a stranger named “Bill” promises a timely solution – but only if he’s willing to take part in a disturbingly twisted plan. Jeremy refuses but things unravel fast and, soon, he finds himself trapped by circumstance in which nothing is what it seemed to be. Who is “Bill” and why has he singled Jeremy out as the unwitting and unwilling accomplice in his trajectory of self demise? Only one person, its seems, can answer that – for Jemery and for Detective Keith Marlin – and that person is dead. With the evidence stacked against him and a murder trial looming, the answers can’t come fast enough for Jeremy Grey.
