How far will a man go to protect his family?
For lawyer Sam Trask, it is farther than he ever thought possible, 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 self-seeking ambition are behind him. His marriage is solid again. Everything seems finally on the right track.
Until 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 to which he has dedicated 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.
