Fifteen-year-old Mike still isn’t over the death of his mother four years ago. He tries to do the things that would make her proud, but his friends aren’t great influences, and neither is his young uncle who happens to be his guardian. As he falls behind in his classes, his teacher and ex-cop Mr. Riel begins to reach out. He seems know more than anyone how Mike struggles and, as it turns out, may know more than anyone about his mother’s death too. Together Mike and Riel begin digging deep into the story behind Mike’s mother’s death. They uncover shocking truth and encounter unexpected danger, all while unraveling the mystery of that fateful hit and run four years ago.
