Three months after he?s undergone surgery to remove a brain tumor, retired police detective Mike Garrity?s cancer is in remission. It?s great news, but when you?ve been planning to only live for a few months, you don?t normally worry about savings. A return to health also means a return to the workforce, and whether he likes it or not, Mike?s going to have to adjust to the role of private investigator.
He's also bounced back into a romance with a member of his cancer support group, Debbie Watson. But while Mike may be celebrating his victory over cancer, Debbie?s just been handed a grim prognosis. Desperate, she asks him for help with what might be her last request: tracking down the son she put up for adoption twenty years ago.
Debbie?s son is not the only lost child Mike has been asked to trace. A high school friend of his daughter has died of an overdose. The boy?s father is convinced that the death was not a suicide and, though the case is officially closed, the officer in charge has his own doubts about its conclusion.
Back at work and stumbling headlong into a new relationship, Mike should have a lot to look forward to. But all is not as it seems, and he?s about to find out that cancer isn?t the only thing trying to kill him.
