When Rick Hoffman starts to renovate the home of his youth he makes an electrifying discovery that will put his life in peril – and change everything he thought he knew about his father.
What secrets are his family keeping?
A month ago, Rick Hoffman was a popular journalist. Now, having being fired by his magazine, he is penniless and alone. At least he still has keys to his father's house, which has been empty since he moved to a nursing home after a stroke.
There, hidden in the walls of his father's attic, Rick finds something that could change his life: bundles of cash worth millions. He knows he shouldn't spend it without asking where it came from. But his bed-bound father can no longer speak. What Rick doesn't realise is that, if he could, he'd tell his son just how much danger he is in...
