James Buchanan McCaa exists on a conflicted high wire. Suspended between heaven and earth, Jimmy B tries to maintain a dangerous balance between right and wrong, moral and immoral, good and evil. He strives to retain the love of his teenage son, Two, while recapturing a long-lost moment of his youth. He loves women who are generations apart. He has benefitted from ill-gotten gains and a respected job. He drifts on the fringe of acceptable society. Not in and not out. He is known to power-brokers, legal and otherwise. The socially important Christmas Party at the Kileys foretells his future, but he is blinded by the desire for instant gratification. A powerful woman, Adriane Simon, offers Jimmy B a way off the high wire. As he begins his journey to safety, he purges parts of his life long since dormant. As he digs into the life of his potential benefactor, he uncovers disturbing clues that can lead to no good. What part of Adrianes past will dictate her future? His future? Can Billy Ray Kiley protect Jimmy from himself? What will happen to Two?
