A brain-injured veteran is arrested for murder soon after he returns home to New Jersey from Afghanistan.
Peter has a motive. The murder victim bullied Peter throughout his youth, and, on the night of the murder, Peter discovers the bully has stolen his fianceé while Peter served overseas. Determining the truth about what happened that fateful night is complicated by Peter’s brain injury, as it either prevents him from recalling events or provides him with the perfect cover.
Detective Luca, in the midst of trying to salvage his marriage, leads the investigation but does not believe the Marine had a role in the killing and pursues other leads as political pressure to solve the case rises .
However, evidence develops and even Peter’s brother, Vinny, who dropped everything to help his injured brother recover, begins to question Peter’s guilt. After Peter’s arrest, his lawyers, faced with a client either unwilling or unable to assist in his own defense, recommend he cop a plea. Detective Luca attempts to move on but is haunted by an old case that fuels his obsession to determine the truth about what happened that night.

“Nick is one of the most complex and interesting characters I’ve come across in a while.”
“Enjoyed the read and learned a few things”
“I really felt for Nick. People w his brand of emotional baggage generally lack the prerequisite confidence to become successful.
The whole book was a great read but the opening portion to his mom’s death was riveting.”
“Great read, the ending caught me off guard”
