25 years is a long time to carry guilt. But ex-cop and now coroner Roy Burtman had been able to manage it. Almost. As a recovering alcoholic with a couple of failed marriages behind him, he was doing the best that he could. But when a decades old case comes back to haunt him, he must face his guilt and demons head on. It had always been that way regarding Sarah. For 25 years now he wondered what really happened to her? What role did he play in her death? What level of responsibility should he accept? Little did he know that he would soon start on a journey where he would get the answers and ultimately he would have to settle for trading one set of nightmares and guilt for another.
