Ben is 17 and he’s not sleeping that well. A few months ago he found his father’s body in the car with the engine running.
Coroner’s verdict: Suicide.
But there are things about the death that don’t add up. People are interested in his father, in his work, in what he left behind – interested enough to kill for it. In his search for the truth about his father’s death, Ben uncovers a secret – a terrible wrong that was done – that is to change the course of his life forever.
