Kate McCall's husband has been killed by her son, Luke, in a tragic bow-hunting accident. While Kate struggles with her loss and Luke's surly guilt, her first love, Jack, an ex-con, comes back to Detroit, looking for redemption. Even though his past--in the form of his former "colleagues"-- trails close behind…

Now, Jack must convince his partners in crime that he really did lose the heist money--and find a way to win Kate's trust. But Jack's return to civil society sets into motion a series of events culminating in dangerous seduction, extortion, and a high-risk confrontation with a gang of killers who don't believe in second chances…and are dead-set at getting even. No matter what the cost.

The blurb describes Leonard as a first time novelist. It is devoutly to be wished that he is a last time novelist if this stinker reflects what we can expect from him. Puerile plot lines, characters that fail to hold your interest and a lot of unnecessary padding are hallmarks of this "underwhelming and pathetic new voice in contemporary crime fiction".
