The horror of one night is forever etched in Matt Hunter's memory-- the night he innocently tried to break up a fight-- and ended up a killer. Now, nine years after his release from prison, his innocence long forgotten, he's an ex-con who takes nothing for granted. With his wife Olivia pregnant and the two of them closing on a house in his home town, things are looking up. Until the day Matt gets a shocking, inexplicable video call from Olivia's phone. In an instant, the unraveling begins. A mysterious man who was tailing Matt turns up dead. A beloved nun is murdered. Local and federal authorities, including homicide investigator Loren Muse, a childhood schoolmate of Matt's with a troubled past of her own, see all signs pointing to a former criminal with one murder already under his belt-- Matt Hunter. Unwilling to lose everything for a second time, Matt and Olivia are forced outside the law in a desperate attempt to save their future together.

This is one of the best crime novels I have ever listened to, in that a complex story has been so well thought out that even in the last few pages, there are surprizes that perfectly mesh with the earlier episodes. While some of the subject matter is not exactly uplifting, the exploration of the lifelong legacy the hero Matt Hunter must somehow live through after he accidently killed a fellow student is fascinating.
