Lauren makes a pact with him that will lead to either death or redemption: confront the demons that haunt him or be prepared to forego a life with her and their son, Edwin. Edwin, mired in the desolation of his fatherless childhood, struggles to heal. As James navigates his own healing, he realizes, somehow, he must save his son’s life—as well as his own. When father and son finally meet, can they rebuild their shattered relationship, and themselves, or will it be too late?
