In a small upstate New York town, Hispanic police officer Jimmy Vega is the first cop on the scene of a home invasion where shots have been fired. A tense stand-off in the dark between Vega and an immigrant burglar ends with Vega firing his gun. As Vega deals with the fallout of the shooting (including his own troubled emotions), he finds those closest to him questioning his story and discovers a link between the man he shot and the brutal unsolved murder of his own mother.

"WOW! This story had so many twists and turns, and keeping you on the edge as to what was going to happen next, that I literally couldn't sit still! At times it was so intense I just had to put the book down . . . AND WALK AWAY . . . I love books that draw you in, and Mr. Bell does this very well. The story was so realistic and believable that it read like it had been taken from the headlines. Riveting. Engrossing. Suspenseful. I look forward to reading this author again."
