What caused Jack Quaid to slowly drive away the love of his life? What made him arrive home late one night, sit in front of a camera pouring out his soul, before taking a shotgun and ending his life? When Detective Alex Keaton arrives at the scene, it has all the signs of a straightforward suicide. Alex is struggling with her own demons following her partner's violent death some months earlier, but when Jack's suicide brings up some strange questions, the tenacious, no-nonsense cop she once was starts to show itself again. Why did Jack feel responsible for a murder he had nothing to do with? Why has he been flying around the world? Why has he filled books with elaborate conspiracy theories? As Alex digs deeper, it appears Jack may have uncovered a terrible secret, one that could impact on Alex personally.
