Four years ago Lew Fonesca's wife was struck and killed in a hit-and-run. In the wake of his loss, Lew left Chicago for Sarasota, and now makes a threadbare living as a process server, helping people out of bad situations, and savoring his clinical depression. When Lew's therapist suggests he needs to close the door to his past so he can finally get on with the rest of his life, Lew hates to admit it, but concedes she has a point. So Lew returns to his hometown, to friends and family--and to a grief that threatens to engulf him. But he's resolved to dig until he finds out who killed his wife.
