Can Detective Alex Walker put his past behind him and prevent another tragic death? Or will his desperate need to protect an innocent child get them both killed? Nearly a year after the traumatic events set in motion by his ex-wife, Alex is looking forward to the next chapter of his life as a Special Agent with Homeland Security. In his last week with the Glynn County Police Department, he volunteers to return to the bike patrol on Saint Simons Island to help out during the Fourth of July festival. He’s once again paired with Steve Albright, his one-time best friend and now estranged brother-in-law. When a shooting on the island pulls them into a manhunt, the two must work together to find the suspect before anyone else is hurt.
