Jay Barnett returns to the mountain home of his youth, seeking reconciliation
with his father, Jay Sr. The old attorney is reluctant to see his newly sober,
divorced and bankrupted namesake, but the two meet, and the talk that goes
into the night turns into an emotional reconciliation. With a storm front
moving in and snow and ice threatening, Jay stays over.
The story takes an uncanny and dark twist when Jay wakes up to
the startling revelation that his father has disappeared and is nowhere to
be found. Panicked at the thought that his eighty-eight-year-old father has
somehow vanished during blizzard conditions, Jay calls 911, and turns to
Robin, the father's legal assistant. The two set out on an emotional, sometimes
terrifying journey that pits them against law enforcement authorities, a state
senator, a mega trucking conglomerate...and ultimately Jay's old nemesis...
Jeffrey Davis, a deadly foe, who mysteriously turns out to be the mastermind
behind the entire conspiracy.
A landmark legal decision against the trucking industry, which could
mean serious implications for the state's struggling economy, coupled with
a web of deceit involving kidnapping, homicide, and racketeering on a
grand scale circles back to the state's oldest practicing attorney who is at the
very heart of the mystery, and the two unlikely heroes that set out against
incredible odds to find a missing father...and ultimately much more.
