A documentary filmmaker and the adoptive single mother of 11-year-old Erny, Tess DeGraff has a full and satisfying life...even though she's still haunted by the murder of her sister. Tess was only 9 when her family's camping trip in New Hampshire turned deadly. Her eyewitness testimony of the abduction convicted Lazarus Abbot, who was subsequently put to death, and Tess has never doubted the right man paid for his crime. So how could it be that DNA evidence now says otherwise, 20 years after the crime? Tess is further stunned when Abbot's outraged mother hires an attorney, Ben Ramsey, to inform her of an impending lawsuit. Tess is determined to get to the truth and Ben, who finds her nearly as courageous as she is attractive, is equally committed to finding out what went wrong.
But as is sometimes the case in small towns, long-buried secrets have a way of slowly rising to the surface...and people you think you know are not who they seem. Could Tess' digging putting her child in danger...and cause a replay of the nightmare she's spent her life trying to forget? Explicit violence, language and sex.
