About the Book...
Strait-laced forty-something Franco picked the wrong night to get freaky. A hook-up with a hot guy and hard drugs on his Manhattan rooftop leaves him dazed. And—if memory serves him—the sole witness to a murder across the street.
Except, the cops can’t find a crime scene or a body, and Franco’s perforated recollections and conflicting testimony leave the detectives unimpressed. When days later the mutilated body of a philanthropic millionaire is discovered, he’s not only shocked to learn he knew him, but with Franco’s fingerprints all over the crime scene, he quickly graduates from unreliable witness to prime suspect. And the random trick who could alibi him has vanished into the anonymity of the Internet.
Unsettled, and confronted with forty-year-old memories, when Franco’s father was murdered in front of him during Manhattan’s infamous blackout, things get worse when a shocking revelation finally unmasks the man who pulled the trigger that night. And painting Franco the perfect suspect.
The cops are closing in, and someone out there will do anything to keep their secrets buried. With a target on his back and time running out, the truth will set Franco free, or earn him a toe tag at the morgue.
