HE DIDN'T MEAN TO OVERHEAR ... but he did.
HE ONLY HEARD A FEW WORDS ... but he heard too much.
HE RAN ... but he was followed -- a mistake that would turn thirteen-year-old Aaron Quinn's, and his beautiful, courageous, single mother, Ashley's, worlds upside down.
THE CLOCK STARTS TICKING ... when Aaron is stolen from his mother by a psychotic killer and thrust headlong into a dark underworld of armed robbery, prostitution, and death. Will Aaron lose his mind as he's forced to participate in a deadly crime spree and witness first hand the horror of cold-blooded murder?
THE WALLS CLOSE IN ... on Ashley when she listens to a tape recording left on her pillow by the killer, giving her two choices:
1) Call the police and risk being responsible for her only child's death ...
2) Offer herself as a sacrifice in exchange for his life ...
