Twenty years ago, thirteen year old JT Trainer was about to be killed by loan sharks for the life insurance money which would pay
off his father's gambling debts. JT's only friend, sixteen year old Hannah McGuire, discovered the plan and managed to get JT on a
bus out of town before luring the killers in the opposite direction.
His face pressed against the bus window, JT's last fleeting glimpse
of Hannah was of her racing off into the night with the gambler's enforcers hot on her trail.
Now, twenty years later, San Diego Homicide
Detective, JT Trainer, is still searching for his vanished friend even as he investigates his latest case, the drive-by shotgun murder
of an eleven year old child.
What JT has no way of knowing is that his hunt for the little girl's killers will become bizarrely entangled
with his twenty year search for his long-lost friend.
