Summary
Dr Paul Allen is a well-respected man. He lives a happy, comfortable life with his second wife and their family. Until the night when a knock at the door blows his world apart: a hugely popular presidential candidate has been shot, and they say the young man who pulled the trigger is Paul's son. Daniel, the only child from his first, failed marriage, was always a good kid and Paul is convinced his quiet boy is not capable of murder. Overwhelmed by a vortex of feelings, Paul embarks on a mission to understand what happened and why. Following the trail of his son's journey across America, he is forced to re-examine his life as a husband and a parent, and every decision he ever made
Summary
Establishing a specialty in diagnosing otherwise abandoned patients with conflicting symptoms, Chief of Rheumatology Paul Allen is placed in the impossible position of having to unlock the mind of his 20-year-old son, who has attempted to assassinate a presidential candidate
