★San Diego attorney Josephine Rinaldi enrolls her father in a cutting-edge research study only to find that she has put them both in imminent danger.★
Josephine aka ‘Jo’ struggles to balance the demands of her budding legal career with caring for her recently widowed and very cantankerous father who’s been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. Jo grew up in the shadow of her older brother, who died in a surfing accident at the age of 18, and took on the duty of fulfilling his unrealized legacy. Despite her best efforts, Jo never seemed able to live up to her father’s expectations, and now that his mind is deteriorating, she has little hope of ever mending their relationship.
When Jo’s boss suggests she enroll her father in a client’s residential research program at the Kessler Institute, it seems like the perfect solution. Her father will be in Dr. Kessler’s expert hands and she can get back to work. But her relief is short-lived when questions about Dr. Kessler go unanswered, and she is forced to hire Scott Benson, a private investigator, to find out what is going on behind closed doors.
When Scott uncovers a series of suspicious deaths, Josephine seeks to regain custody of her father and finds herself embroiled in a battle that jeopardizes not only her career but her father’s life. In desperation, she turns to Scott unaware that Scott’s own hidden secrets further endangers them when Kessler refuses to relinquish his patient.
