Publisher Description


Cole Jackson is sent to prison for a murder he did not commit, the murder of his wife Lindsey. She is stabbed to death late one night. A night Cole doesn't remember, but he does know one thing for certain, he could never have committed the act. 

His talent as a songwriter and avid reader save him from the loneliness of the cold, dark and unforgiving prison walls. As he joins the world of the free again, after fifteen years in prison, he struggles with his once again fame in being part of a rock-n-roll band and the stigma of being a convicted killer. What he has is a tarnished reputation and the determination to find the true killer and restore his life as best he can.

Shannon Gallagher's hard work as a writer is finally paying off. She is raising a terrific and talented sixteen-year-old son. She believes her life is complete, until she meets Cole Jackson. She idolized him at sixteen, cried at twenty-one when he went to prison. Now at thirty-six, she meets him and falls in love. Only being in love with Cole is painful and more dangerous as the closer Cole gets to exposing his wife's killer, the closer Shannon becomes to being his next victim.
