Seven-year-old Christopher Abkhazian refuses to be forgotten. This child's death took place during the waning days of Prohibition in San Diego. Some said it was accidental death; pathologists disagreed. Unsolved, it gathered dust on cold case shelves for over sixty years. When a team of forensic detectives reopens the investigation in 1990, it expects to put the case to closure. But this victim demands justice, not obscurity. An unlikely duo begins an investigation of their own. Ex-policeman Pete McGraw believes this case has been purposely mishandled; there is a cover-up. McGraw knows the facts; he was the chief detective in 1933. Reporter Sera Schilling begins delving. As the truth unfolds, she steps on a land mine when she uncovers a dark and deadly family secret-a secret they would kill to keep buried.
