Detective Nick Forte is not impressed when Shirley Mitchell asks him to clear her son's name for a murder everyone is sure he committed. Persuaded to at least look around, Forte soon encounters a dead body, as well as the distinct possibility the next murder he's involved with will be his own. Clearing Doug Mitchell's name quickly becomes far less important to Forte than keeping references to himself in the present tense.
