When my wife was murdered, I thought my life was over. I left the town we lived in, promising myself I'd never return. I had no plan, no hope, no real desire to go on. But God had other plans for me. My journey from grieving husband to Catholic priest was not without it's struggles, but I finally found peace and contentment in service to Him.

But I'm bound by obedience to my Archbishop, and when he orders me to serve as the temporary pastor of a parish in the town I left fifteen years earlier, I cannot refuse. I want to come and go quietly, avoiding the past. But the past won't leave me alone. I find my late wife had secrets--secrets that may have led to her murder.Things get even more complicated for me when I go to the police and discover the detective is another woman from my past--one I left heartbroken twenty years earlier. She reluctantly agrees to reopen the case. Another murder complicates the investigation.

But the closer we get to the truth, the closer we become . . .

I'm Father Tom Greer, a Catholic priest, and I'm playing with fire.
