It´s time to come home, Finn. It´s been seven years since Daniel Finley left his hometown in Florida for the hustle and bustle of Chicago´s city life. Since then, he´s worked hard for his position at the prestigious law firm Leighton & Associates, even when it´s caused distance and isolation from his family and friends. But that´s all about to change. On his 30th birthday, he receives the one thing he never dared hope for. Something that was promised to him years earlier - a note. One simple sentence from the man he´s never been able to forget. Six words will forever change the course of their lives. Brantley Hayes has it all. Or so he thinks. When he first made the decision to take a job down in Florida, his family thought he was crazy. But, after years of living in the quiet beach town, he finally feels a sense of community. He´s surrounded himself with friends who are like family, has a job he loves, and owns a spectacular beachfront property that is his sanctuary. Yet he still feels unfulfilled, as if a piece of the puzzle is missing, and he knows exactly which piece it is. On an impulse, he follows through with a promise he made years earlier. A promise to call home the one he sent away. Nothing is as simple as it seems. After years of separation, the former lovers are reunited, but Brantley wasn´t expecting to encounter the high walls now guarding Daniel´s heart. Daniel may not be the same person he was when he left, but he knows that the first step to healing is the note in his hand. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Charlie David.

As the similarities keep piling up, so do the bodies...and the evidence pointing to James as the killer. Since long before the shooting, James has been dishonest. He´s been evasive. Oh, and there´s that minor detail he withheld from Brian about being a gambling-addicted drug dealer. James may not be the best boyfriend in the world, but he begs Brian to believe he´s no killer. In fact, whoever did pull the trigger undoubtedly wants to finish what they started, and Brian is the only one James trusts to keep him safe.
