Separated by a river and twenty years of lies.
Five minutes changed Poppy Sadler's life forever. Tick. The hospital called. Her mother's battle with cancer was finally over. Tock. The police showed up at her door. Her father's body has just been pulled from the River. Tick. Murdered.
Tick, Tock. Five minutes and a secret is coming undone.
Across the river, Justin Caulfield's vast fortune can buy him anything but more time. Tick. A deadly disease is stealing his daughter's life. He needs a miracle. Tock.
