Jones hadnever promised Ruth Verne that he would find her son alive, but heknew deep down that she believed he would — worse, he had believedit too.

He wasn't ready to admit that he lost everything andhad nothing to show for it.But an unsigned note scrawled on a bathroom door gives Jones asecond chance — a chance for redemption. Thirteen words left by ayoung girl in trouble give him someone to chase and a reason tokeep moving before the cops move on him. Jones follows the trailfrom an idyllic small town to the darkest corners of the city,running from the boy he failed toward the girl he could stillsave.
