When Nick Carmody agrees to take the fall for his old friend Danny Grogan, he has no idea what he's setting in motion.

He doesn't know that the path he chooses will be a thousand times more dangerous than the one he's leaving behind.

Or that he will fall in love with a woman who enters his life in the most unpredictable way.

And it is merely chance that has taken over the direction of his life?  Or are more sinister forces at work?
