Life has definitely become predictable for Terry Maitland and there’s a certain level of comfort in that for the small town sports coach.  Having the trust of his friends, neighbours and colleagues is no small thing and staying put to support his community in a time of trouble would always be what Terry would choose to do.    Being arrested in front of the entire town at a game is only the beginning of Terry’s nightmarish fall from grace.  The murder of an eleven year old boy is a hard thing for Flint City to endure, let alone to find out that the chief suspect is one of their most beloved residents. That level of betrayal unleashes a corresponding level of hate from the town towards Terry Maitland and his family.

With so much DNA evidence having been found on the body of the child, Detective Ralph Anderson is convinced that they have locked up the right man.  Maitland however was at an industry conference on the day of the murder and has many alibis to attest to his attendance.  How can one man have been in two places at the same time?
