Abstract:

Former police officer Max Tyger--now a Connecticut-based PI who makes ends meet by teaching criminal justice at a community college at night--has recently been diagnosed with esophageal cancer, a rare form. Max has lost forty pounds and, due to his own failings, the love of his life, all within the past six months. On top of his physical and personal trials, he continues to be haunted by the suicide of a former student. This is when police officer Helen Baxter enters his office and offers a case she won't touch: Tommy Lewis, a junior at the prestigious Blain School, is said to be missing by his art teacher. However, the teen's parents and school officials deny the claim. Max is initially skeptical, but he has failed one teenage boy already. Years earlier, when Hutch Hillsdale ran, Max let him go. Now nothing will bring him back. Redemption can come in many forms. And Max, who is facing his own mortality, sees a chance at it in the search for Tommy Lewis.
