What if a stranger begged: “Only you can help me find Daddy’s killer”?
A consultant to FBI now on medical leave, Nica Dobson is wrestling with images of whom she once was and who she is now.

Investigating a suspicious death from the eighties to prove a paternity connection between a terminally ill school teacher and a hard-living rock star would be nearly impossible for Nica even with the Bureau to back her up. Now? Nica is forced to depend on her nemesis from high school, Payton Yu, who seems to ignore facts in his quest to become Hawaii’s governor.
