Silhouette father and son at sunsetWelcome to Maple City…where the citizens create their own laws and vigilantes rule.
Sam Whitfield is living the life most twenty-somethings would die for: his grandfather is the richest man in town and Sam only has to ask for anything he wants and it is handed to him. The only problem is his grandfather wants him to step up and help run the family business, which Sam has no interest in.

When Sam learns of Richard Cook’s release from prison, he is rocked by the enormity of the lie his grandfather told him when he was just five years old. Now Sam is on a mission to discover the truth of what happened the night his mother was murdered.

Sam sets out to find Cook, the man who was convicted of killing his mother. A man who has claimed his innocence all along. And when the local vigilante mob targets Cook as their next victim, only Sam can save him.

When Sam runs into Sarah, an old childhood friend, he is instantly smitten. But she wants nothing to do with him and she has a boyfriend whom Sam suspects is part of the vigilantes. Can he convince her to help him fight the vigilantes?

While outsmarting his grandfather and thwarting the vigilantes, Sam develops a relationship with the man he wronged so many years ago. But Sam’s grandfather has big plans for Sam that don’t include Richard Cook, and Sam must make the most important decision of his life.
